Here’s a quick, easy and fun craftivity for your "March is Reading Month" Seuss celebration, and to help celebrate Seuss, I'm pricing this packet at $3.95 instead of $4.95.
This cat's hat craftivity is very versatile, as it can be used as a game, independent center, whole group activity, bulletin board, writing prompt or reading log.
There are "brim" options for preschool to 2nd grade, as well as several generic ones to fit whatever.
Besides the “Alphabetize Your Classmates” game, the packet also includes a mini cat hat craftivity, with a variety of brim options for that too.
Students choose to put their hat on a cat pattern, an enlarged photo of themselves, or they can pick a head pattern and draw a face on it.
I’ve included 9 faceless head templates they can pick from, as I find this helps little ones with size, however you can always opt to have children draw their own.
Students color, trim and glue their hat on top of their head.
Completed projects make an adorable bulletin board.
I've included a worksheet for alphabetizing practice, plus a "Speed" game challenge, recording sheet.
Since the hat templates are blank, you can also have students write a list of their favorite Seuss books.
Older students can put their list in alphabetical order.
Another idea is to “Stack a Hat” using the stripes as a reading log to jot down each book they read during March is Reading Month or the number of pages they’ve read each week.
You can also use the blank hat for a writing prompt of your choice, or have students list the reasons why they like to read, or specifically why they enjoy reading Dr. Seuss books.
Patterns come on a full-page, as well as a smaller, 2-on-a-page size, to save on paper.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a “Seuss-tastic” March!
