Get ready to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday and Read Across America. You need high-quality Dr. Seuss activities. It's also a great time to connect what students love about adventure stories to their own writing. These materials are ideal for teachers celebrating Dr. Seuss activities or Eric Carle activities or looking for a springboard for a different Dr. Seuss unit.
You need easy Dr. Seuss activities that you can put in literacy centers and let students complete on their own. Be sure to download the preview file so you can model adventure story writing to students.
Here's how it works. Before you begin your Dr. Seuss unit or your Eric Carle unit, select 2 adventure stories to read aloud to your students. While you could do a Compare/Contrast between the two authors, you could focus on retelling and creative writing.
Many Dr. Seuss stories along with Rooster's Off to See the World by Eric Carle are available in most libraries. Both are also available as narrated video stories on YouTube. That's why it's easy to link Eric Carle activities and Dr. Seuss activities to retelling Seuss adventures in a complete Dr. Seuss unit.
This pack helps your students retell or write and illustrate stories featuring fish, roosters, turtles, dogs, cats, and frogs.
Encourage students to manipulate the animals by giving them their own set of the cards. Students write their own illustrated stories on scrap paper or handwriting paper. If you teach first grade and subscribe to Scholastic Weekly Reader (Spr. 2014), link this to the March Dr. Seuss issue. Dr. Seuss activities are good in March and any time of year.
