Primary Chalkboard: Friday- Read Across America Activities in My Classroom

Friday- Read Across America Activities in My Classroom



Hi, friends! It's Laura from Peace, Love, and First Grade!
I apologize for the lateness of today's post! One. Crazy. Day!

This week, we've been celebrating Read Across America and all things Dr. Seuss!
Here are my favorites from our class!

The cute hat/cake craft below came from Cupcake
I just added a writing page.
She doesn't sell this craft because selling Seuss products on TpT is a little bit illegal...
Most sellers (including me) won't take that chance!
Cupcake sells some other great crafts, though!

We read A TON of Seuss books this week! 
Today we wrote about our favorites. 


 

We had a birthday party, too!

The Menu
 Lorax Nutter Butters

Green Eggs and Ham

Horton's Peanuts

Red Fish in Blue Jello
 Whew! Thank goodness for Pinterest!
Most of these are on my Seuss Pinterest board.
You can find it here!

A few more pics from my school-


Here is our precious librarian with a little cat!


A Heart-shaped Zoo in 2nd Grade-Seuss would be proud!

Kid created art from our Kinder friends!

 By the way, Kohls offers fun books and stuffed characters for $5 each.
We have a lot of reading buddies in my class because of Kohls
 Sam-I-Am and Pop (from Hop on Pop)

Right now, you can find Go, Dog, Go and Put me in the Zoo.
Not Dr. Seuss, but P.D. Eastman and Robert Lopshire are pretty cool, too! 

Thanks for stopping by The Chalkboard!

Have some great ideas to share??
We'd love to see them!

  5. Isn't P.D. Eastman one of Dr. Seuss' pen names? I thought I read that somewhere... not sure.

    1. Hi, Laura! PD was actually a real person, but many people think some of his books were written by Dr. Seuss-like Are You My Mother and Go, Dog, Go. He sure does have the Seuss style, though!
      Thanks for stopping by!
