This packet has just been up-dated
(3/5/16) With redrawn bold, sharp, 300dpi graphics!
The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss
, is one of my students' favorite stories.
With that in mind I designed “Shapin’ Up With The Lorax”, which is a quick, easy and fun craftivity,
with a variety of game
There's also an emergent reader
, which practices capitalization
and end punctuation
I've included samples of the booklet in the PREVIEW.
To celebrate Seuss
, I'm pricing this packet at $3.95 instead of $4.95.
I’ve provided both 2D shapes
as well as the four, 3D
Make a set to use for a bulletin board
Make an extra set; cut them in half, and use as puzzles
for an independent math center
and an interesting way to review symmetry
Play 4-Corner FREEZE
; a game that practices a variety of life skills
, like listening
and following directions
, as well as the 2D/3D shape vocabulary
, plus recognition, and counting backwards
from 10 to 0.
My kiddos absolutely LOVE this game.
Easy-peasy for me
, and only takes a few minutes
, so it’s perfect for the end of the day
. I’ve included directions in the packet.
You can also use the Lorax shapes as big flashcards
. Hold one up.
Children call out what shape it is, along with its attributes
, like the number of vertices
Play “Who’s Missing?”
Display a set on the wall. After children leave, take one away. In the morning, children guess which one is missing.
I’ve also included a 2-on-a-one-page template, so children can pick their favorite shape and create their own Lorax
There are 2 mustache options: “I ‘mustache’ you a question. What shape am I?”
is written on one, the other is blank.
For a cute keepsake
idea, students can use their hand prints
as the mustache, and add accordion-folded
legs and arms. (Super fine motor practice!)
Have older students write attributes
on the back.
is also an appropriate story to read for Earth Day
, then follow up with this craftivity.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me. I hope your students enjoy Dr. Seuss’s
story, and have fun shaping up with the Lorax
