PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Reading is part of all of our classroom lives, but during the month of March, it's extra special due to March Reading Month! Our favorite author, Theodor Geisel, the famous cat doctor, has his birthday on March 2. This day and author is a kick start to many of our Reading Month Celebrations and this author study will be a perfect addition to your reading activities!

Included in this 91-page unit is all you need to teach your primary students about Geisel and his life. There are materials provided to help create an author study report, in the form of anchor chart materials, comprehension task cards, reading passages, and more!

Use all the information I've provided to write a report (along with your own books of his) in a fun and interactive way. Your students will learn how to use nonfiction information in various forms and turn that information into their author study.

Next, you will find over 25+ no-prep, comprehension printables that can be used alone and some with any of Geisel's books! They are all interactive activities and focus on various reading strategies and components, such as character traits, author's purpose, and more. Students will be asked to use higher level thinking skills, while comparing more than one of his books, imagining they were with some of the characters, and other fun activities. There is also a classroom graph, in which students graph their favorite book of the focus author.

There are some project-type printables in which students create new animals that Geisel might have created, designing a new pair of crazy socks, and more.

Included in this unit are two craftivities... Students will make themselves flying in a hot air balloon and also a Wocket glyph that's housed in its own pocket.

Your students will have so much fun with this unit that will last you all month or more because there's so much reading goodness included.

Please see the preview for a look at every page included!
