Seusstastic Seuss Week Freebies & Ideas


I can't wait to start my Dr. Seuss unit on March 2nd! There have been so many seusstastic activities floating around out there in blogland, TPT, & Pinterest! I just had to share some of my seusstastic ideas! 
This is Pinterest inspired! I would suggest putting this on manila or yellow paper instead of white. You can tell it's a handprint up close & it turned out adorable!

 Please pin & then click on the pic above & download this project for FREE! 
Holy cuteness! I L.O.V.E. how this turned out! 
The earth is a marble painted..they love this! The mustache is from Rachel from Sub Hub. Download the Lorax mustache & follow her while you're there. Tell her Mel D sent you! 
 I just used Rachel's Lorax mustache template & colored it yellow. I had the kids each hold it up to their faces. 
This is a Fox in Socks rhyming game. I just purchased socks from the Dollar Tree & wrote rhyming words on them. I am planning on making some other games on card stock if I find a cute sock graphic. 
This is a Green Eggs and Ham game. I originally made it for my Kindergarten students to work with word families. I changed it up and made a sheet for them to make real & nonsense words. I used foam sheets which are really durable but you can also use colored card stock.
This is a Cat in the Hat rhyming game I created. As they found the matches they wrote the rhyming words on the sheet. I will extend this activity by having them use their matches to create a poem.
I know this is so random but I had to share. We recently moved into my childhood home & I LOVE decorating! I saw all these saying floating around Pinterest...of course...& got inspired to make these for my husband for Valentine's Day. I made all but one. If you are interested in these I will post them..just leave me a comment. 
I just created the following items for FREE this week. I will be using these in my classroom during my Seuss unit. Please pin & share!

  1. These activities are amazing! Thank you so much for sharing! One question...when I download the PDF, many of the pages come up with portions "blacked" out! Is there something I'm doing wrong?
    Thanks again!

  18. We did the Thing 1 and Thing 2 handprint idea too. We did it on a big piece of black construction paper and then attached your Cat in the Hat part of your Freebie. It is so cute. I am going to post some pictures later. Thanks for the Freebie. My kids have LOVED every part of it!

    You've been so inspiring! My kids have written their little hearts out this week. We used your idea about the Lorax with a stationary template from TPT to write. I was due to create the "Main" bulletin board at the front of the school, so we put those there. We've gotten so many compliments that I felt like queen for the day yesterday :) I'd love to send you a picture. We also used the handprint "Things" and put your great writing paper inside of a house fold for our class' hall bulletin board. It was a great couple of days of Seuss! I'm at darryl40w@att.net.

  22. I love your ideas. I want to use the Lorax idea for Earth Day. This may sound like a silly question, but how do you marble paint for the earth? I never did that before.
