Happy Birthday, Dr.Seuss!

February 21, 2010

  Participate in the Read Across America celebration on March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss.
The official Dr. Seuss web site offers a biography and interactive games. www.seussville.com.
Our school has purchased a subscription to www.brainpop.com which also provides information and activities on Dr. Seuss.
We will be inviting parents to join us in reading during our Dr. Seuss Day. On this day, students will be rotating through stations and reading
various Dr. Seuss books.
Begin the week with a student and parent reading Reading Survey.
After students have spent time reading the books by Dr. Seuss, we discuss some quotes from some of his characters.
Students will then write and make connections to these quotes. They can write on the quote of their choice.
 The Dr.Seuss task menu provides differentiated tasks that can be used during stations.
Click on Task 1  for a word bank for writing a book-shaped poem using www.readwritethink.com.
Click on Task 4 for two surveys and graphing tasks.
Click on TASK 5  for a free choice task that includes a Venn-diagram.
Click on Task 7  for a story element graphic organizer.
Click on Task 8 for a non-fiction activity based on Dr.Seuss’s Sleep Book. (Mini research activity)
Click on Task 9  for a rainy day word bank to use for writing a composition.
Click on directions for Task Cards.
