You'll receive resources for your families attending the event and staff that are helping to run the station activities.

~Station Activities: There are seven activities included, in summary~
Yertle's Twisters: Families practice fluency through saying the provided tongue twisters and then writing their own.
Thing Three is Me: Students will brainstorm words that rhyme with the word three. They'll then make a craft that makes them into "Thing Three"
The Places I'll Go: Students will make a hot-air balloon craft and list one goal they have for themselves as an adult.
Egg, Egg, Ham: This is a "Seussified" game of Tic-Tac-Toe. Students will play a few rounds and then write about their own new colored food.
Fox in Socks: To practice rhyming, students will make an interactive fox, and write pairs of words that rhyme.
Horton Hears: This is a station students will make a headband with huge elephant ears and then use their "ears" to listen a book read aloud from their family member.

Finally, I've included a banner and other book character decorations you can use to make a bulletin board for your event.
