Get your students up and moving in an activity to showcase the various sound effects and onomatopoeia used in Dr. Seuss' books! After reading one or two Dr. Seuss books (Gerald McBoing Boing and Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?), students becoming actively engaged in the words by acting out the various sound effects used in Dr. Seuss' writing. By combining literature and dramatic play, students will have a better understanding of how his words and sounds effects contribute to the mood of his books.
This lesson plan is three pages long. The first page contains directions on how to incorporate the dramatic play into a discussion of the book, in addition to an idea to extend the students' learning while providing them with an opportunity to use technology. The final two pages of the lesson include sound effects cards to use in the dramatic play.
This lesson is a quick and fun lesson to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday or to use in a book club! I hope you enjoy! It is also available in my Movement Mania
