Dr Seuss’s Birthday
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.Dr Seuss- I Can Read With My Eyes Shut
Dr Seuss. The child author who brought us such beloved characters as Thing One & Two, Grinch, Horton and so many others that are loved around the world.
Born March 2nd 1904, Theodor Seuss Geisel was a children’s author, cartoonist, illustrator and filmmaker; having wrote and illustrated over 60 books under his pen name Dr Seuss.
In order to help you and your class celebrate the birthday of Dr Seuss, I’ve put together a blog which will hopefully give you some inspiration for some ideas on how to celebrate his birthday.
If you’re looking for some inspiration to help make reading more fun and engaging for kids in their own time, why not try and a splash of creativity to a spare section of the classroom and make a dedicated reading area where they would be able to solely focus on their favourite books.
If you’re looking for some inspiration to help make learning more fun and engaging for kids in their own time, why not try and a splash of creativity to a spare section of the classroom and make a dedicated display area where the children can pin up their favourite pieces of work all to do with the topic of Dr Seuss and his various works.
A nice and easy DIY craft activity to complete is this Cat In The Hat Mask provided by PBS Kids Parent Blog.
Another craft activity I found is from the Suessville website and is called Hats Off to Hats. Whether it’s for a party or just to add a bit of nonsense to the day, kids will have a hatful of fun making and wearing these hats.
If you’re feeling daring, have a go at teaching a cooking class and have your class try their hand at cupcake making.
The Lorax- Read By Danny Devito
Dr. Seuss’s beloved story teaches all of us to speak up and make a difference. The Lorax tells the story, in a playful and hopeful way, of the beautiful Truffula Trees and the danger of taking our earth for granted. The book teaches us that just one small seed, or one small child, can make a difference.
