Another Seuss-Tastic Week

Since there are sooooo many great Dr. Seuss books, we couldn't limit our fun to just one week! We've used more Seuss books this week to practice a variety of skills!
First, we read Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? and discuss onomatopoeia. The kids always love learning this word! After we charted the sound words, the kids wrote their own sentence using onomatopoeia as well as quotation marks {great time to throw in a mini-lesson!}.



You can get the writing page here as a freebie!

We also read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and of course, did a little goldfish graphing. This activity is part of my Crazy Cat pack on TpT. 

One of my favorite Dr. Seuss books is one of his most simple, but I remember reading it as a child. In a People House is a great book to review labeling! We read it, then made our own houses with things we have in our houses.

In science, we used If I Ran the Zoo to kick off our study of zoo animals. We read the story, then charted zoo animals. We also took each day to learn about a different zoo animal {I let the kids vote on the ones we learned about}. We made an informational book about zoo animals {which we got a little behind on since I had to be out this week}, made a class organizer, and made a cute craft. The crafts can be found in Deanna Jump's zoo pack on TpT. You can get the zoo book here as a freebie! :) {The book only includes the animals my class voted to learn about, but it includes a blank page you could use for others}







Along with learning about real elephants, we also read Horton Hears A Who. We charted Horton's charactersitics along with evidence from the story that helped proved them. Then, we made our own Horton's with our writing of how we could be more like Horton. They turned out to be so cute! {Can you tell we like to be the best??}


Whew! What a week! Be sure to check back this weekend...there might be some bright ideas floating around!
