Dr. Seuss

Here are just some of the Dr. Seuss activities we did:

All About Dr. Seuss Anchor Charts!

Green Eggs and Ham

After reading the book Green Eggs and Ham we used these charts to graph our responses to the following questions:

Instead of making actual green eggs and ham I made these cookies that looked like green eggs and ham.  I didn't show the cookies to the students until after they answered the question if they would like to try green eggs and ham.  They thought they would be eating actual green eggs and ham.  They were shocked and excited to see it was a cookie.  LOL

The Cat in the Hat

The students used their pictures to make themselves into Thing 1 and Thing 2!

The Foot Book

This book is great when teaching Antonyms.  After reading the book the students wrote a pair of antonyms on their pair of feet.  Then, they illustrated what the words mean.

Fox in Socks

After reading this book we talked about what Synonyms are.  The students then wrote a pair of synonyms on their pair of socks and illustrated what the words mean.

The Lorax

After reading the book, we went through these story element Truffula Trees!  Then, each student made a poster on how we can take care of the Earth.

Horton Hears a Who

After reading the book, the students pretended they were a Who living in Whoville and wrote a Thank You letter to Horton.  They also made this fun craft.

Oh, The Places You'll Go!

After reading the book, the students picked one of the writing prompts to write about....
Prompt #1: If I could go anywhere, I would want to go to... 
Prompt #2:  If I could be anything when I grow up, I would want to be a...
They also made this fun craft.  Underneath the hot air balloon is the student's writing.

Using silly students pictures would be super cute!

Dr. Seuss Word Sort

To end our fun week of Dr. Seuss activities we ate these yummy Cat in the Hat cookies!  The hat cookie cutters were made out of a large metal can.  The can was shaped and the edges were sanded to make the cookie cutter.


  1. Green egg and hams cookies. Wonderful idea! They came out really cute. I love the antonym and synonym activity and that that the pair is attached to each other. Thanks for sharing pictures.
