Product Description

Do you read “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” by Dr. Seuss? It’s one of my all-time favorite Seuss stories.

“Oh the Places You’ll Go” is not only perfect for March is Reading Month, Read Across America, or a Celebration of Seuss Week. but the story is also appropriate at the end of the year, when students are advancing into a new grade or graduating!

With that in mind, I decided to combine reading and writing with a bit of geography, with this super-fun “Oh, the Places I’LL Go!” craft.

Children think of a place they’d like to travel to. Money is no object, so the world is literally at their feet.

Older students can do a bit of research to find out about a fascinating place they’d like to travel to. (Thus the geography connection, as well as great research & technology practice!)

There are 4 graphic options of children reading a book. Students choose one, which becomes the “base” of their booklet.

The cover of the hat, comes with & without the question words: Who? What? Why? When? Where & How? This flips up to reveal 3-pages of answers.

I’ve also included a blank page template, so that students can consolidate their answers to one page, or write longer answers if they want.

Be sure and check the PREVIEW to see lots of samples.

The craftivity provides an interesting way to practice & reinforce the “5 Ws + 1 H” question words in a fun way: “Where would you like to travel to?”, "When would you like to go?", "Why do you want to go there?", "Who do you want to go with?", "What do you want to see?" and "How do you want to get there?"

I’ve included a poster with the questions, which you can use to introduce your lesson.

As always, patterns come in both black & white for students, as well as color, so that teachers can quickly & easily make an example to share.

Completed projects make a terrific bulletin board or hallway display.

I’ve included a variety of posters as well as letters for the caption: “Oh, the Places We’ll Go!” to add extra pizzazz.

You can leave the “child reading craftivity” as is, or have students glue it to the pattern featuring a stack of 2 suitcases.

A luggage tag for a student’s name, adds some 3D pizzazz.

HEADS UP!

While designing the first “Oh the places” HAT craft, I decided to divide things up and make a separate packet with a young child reading, as well as another packet featuring older students, instead of putting everything into one purchase.

By making 3 separate packets, teachers can choose which craft is most appropriate for their students and grade level. This also keeps the price down.

While the writing prompt CRAFT is different in all 3 of the packets, they do include the same posters & letters for the bulletin board caption.
