Dr. Seuss Centers to Wrap Up Dr. Seuss Month

Dr. Seuss Day! A wrap up to our Dr. Seuss unit in Kindergarten in March.
Each year, to wrap up our Dr. Seuss unit, I invite parents to come to our classroom to participate in various Dr. Seuss activities with their Kindergarten child.

I set up several stations around the classroom that they could choose from. The event lasts for an hour, and they rotate through as many centers as they like.

At this activity, the students and their parents matched the green letters (yolks) with the pictures that start with that letter (eggs). This activity is from Making Learning Fun.

Students played alphabet Bingo against their parents.

ONE FISH, TWO FISH ESTIMATION
Students had to estimate how many fish would fit into the fishbowl without overlapping. They then tried it out to see how close their estimate was to the actual number of fish that fit inside.

I found this magnetic set at Zellers several years ago when the Cat in the Hat movie came out in theatres. Students use the magnets to recreate scenes from the book.

This template is from  obSEUSSed. I shrunk down the overall size so that the template would fit on a small paper bag.

I thought it would be cute to use my students' pictures for this craft, so I cut & glued their faces onto the sheets.
