It's Dr. Seuss week at my school! Love me some Cat in the Hat and One Fish Two Fish! Sharing these silly rhymes, crazy words, and funny pictures with my students just makes me happy. Check out what we've been doing in my speech room this week.
On Monday, one of my very fabulous preschool teachers gave me this cute Cat in the Hat face to use.
She made it herself, and it turned out super cute! I just attached it to a tissue box and was good to go! She told me that she was inspired by this post, in case you wanted to try and make your own.
Well this was the cat who tried to eat everything...and he especially loved artic cards! ;) We hid the cards and fed them to the Cat in the Hat when we found them.
During Dr. Seuss week last year, I made this cute "find it" shaker. I printed out a bunch of /r/ and /s/ words from the Cat in the Hat and filled the container with rice. The kids have to shake up the bottle to find the words. So fun. Check out how to make them here.
For the kids' craftivity, we read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and made cutesy little fish bowls inspired by this post. Look how cute they turned out.
I first made giant fishbowls out of legal sized card stock. I got out some paintbrushes and washable kid paint and let the kids paint "water" on the fishbowl.
I made some fishy printables and printed them out on construction paper. While we read a few pages of One Fish Two Fish, I had the kids write words with their speech sound on their fish.
With my preschoolers, we glued little pictures to the fish. My non-verbal kid worked on big/little by sorting the fish onto the different sides of the fishbowl.
They loved painting and gluing all of their fishies to the bowl!
If you want to try it too, you can grab the printables I made HERE. There is a colored template and line art template.
What fun Seussy activities are y'all doing in your speech rooms this week??
