So, I had this entire blog planned out and the thunder started. Rain doesn't bother me at all, but thunder and lightning means tornadoes in my world. I don't do bad weather, so now I am hyperventilating (Not really, but I do keep jumping) and praying at some point God will quit bowling.
Anyway, while I wait for the weather to settle down, I thought I'd share my Dr. Seuss ideas I found online. I also have a few more freebie birthday sheets ready, so those are right below this paragraph. If you see anything you like, click the picture and it will take you to the site where I found it (If there is a site).
#1 Teaching Blog Addict
This is one of my favorite websites. There are always excellent ideas and right now, there are TONS of freebies for Dr. Seuss' birthday. I know I will definitely be grabbing a few of these things for next week.
This is approved by the Seussville site and I have to say it is adorable. I just wish I could afford to print the entire thing times twenty in color. It is twenty pages of activities that include rhyming, short stories, math, and more. Honestly, it really fits Kindergarten perfectly. It could also be good for first graders that need independent work. This is well worth your time.
Okay, this is the best freebie I think I've ever seen! If you follow the picture, there are 8 sets of activities/worksheets based off of 8 different Dr. Seuss books. Oh, and if you don't have the books Target has ALL Dr. Seuss books for $5 or $10. I know I loaded up on them today. Right now, I'm thinking the entire month of March should be devoted to Dr. Seuss. There's no way I'm fitting this into a few days and I'm only on number 3.
#4 Cat in the Hat Craft
I have seen this adorable cat floating around on Pinterest for the last two weeks. I just had to post it. It originated with a Kindergarten teacher named Anna Holcomb. It took a little digging, so I'm putting it here so you can go straight to her blog and check it out. I love these crafty teachers because they always help balance out all the worksheets :)
#5 Dr. Seuss Book Graph
I absolutely adore this book graph freebie. I love it so much that when I cleaned up my pins earlier this week, I realized I had pinned it more than once. To me, this is the perfect way to marry math and reading. I can't wait to take the time next week to read all of these books to my kiddos and then let them do this graph. A matter of fact, I am probably going to print this one in color. I just adore it. As I mentioned above, Target has All the Dr. Seuss books. I went today and I bought five of these titles. I don't think there's anything better than a crisp, new hardback book. I cannot wait to do this next week! Lindsay nailed it with this one! She also has some really cute centers that are in my cart. You won't regret checking out her blog.
#6 Target Goodies
Alright, ya'll. As I mentioned above, I went to Target today. Well, before I went to Target, I visited Party City. In case you are going between the two, I found the same items at Target for Dr. Seuss marked down. For example, the Dr. Seuss pencils were $4.99 at Party City. At Target, they were $3.48. They weren't in a clearance area. I found all of the items where you find the school supplies. I can't promise they are on sale at your Target, but I have a feeling if I got them marked down, chances are you will find them marked down at your Target. Now, to find t-shirts. If anyone has any ideas, please leave me a comment :)
#7 Silly Cat Math Roll
I fell in love with this the second I saw it. It's a cute, little math game. The kids use dice, roll them, and cover the numbers they roll. The best part is it is free! This will definitely be one of my centers for next week.
#8 Jello Snack
I'm not sure about you guys, but I love being able to tie a snack into a learning activity. I saw this one a few weeks ago and thought it looked simple and I have no doubt that my kids will eat this. I would LOVE to link it up to the creator, but the pin went straight to a picture. If any of you know who came up with such a fantabulous idea, please let me know. I definitely want to give credit to the creator :)
#9 The Birthday Round Up
This is a cute place value center activity. What I like about it most is it is perfect for your higher level thinking kiddos. Here's the funny part about this pin. I was going through my Dr. Seuss Pinterest board, saw it and I had to mention it. Well, I went to follow it to the teacher's blog and it's my friend Catherine, The Brown-Bag Teacher. There's something neat about picking an item and not realizing it belongs to someone that follows your blog. Plus, I follow her blog, so I'm excited about sending you her way. She has an entire set of these adorable centers, so go pick up her freebie and see what else she has prepared :)
#10 Goldfish Colors and a Book
You know the phrase, "Save the best for last"? Well, I may have managed to do that. The Oopsey Daisy blog takes the goldfish and graphs them. This goes great with One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. This blog also gives you an idea for t-shirts if you can't find one (Anyone remembering my dilemma right now?) This blog is pretty incredible, so when I have time, I'm going back to look a little closer. I think you will enjoy this one as much as me!
These are just a few of the things that I found. If you want more ideas go to my HOLIDAY FUN - DR. SEUSS board. It is loaded with tons of fun activities. My next blog post like this will be on St. Patrick's Day, so if you guys have any awesome freebies that you have found, leave me a link over the next week. I will be sure to check it out and feature it if it falls within what I'm looking for. These are some of my favorite posts to do. They take forever, but they save tons of time during the week!
