Dr. Seuss Week came early!

This year we celebrated Dr. Seuss way earlier than usual. We use the Journey's reading series and this week our story was all about Dr. Seuss, so.... we decided to go ahead and do our celebrating during our story. 

I didn't get a picture of everything, but I do have a few freebies for you that hopefully you can use during Read Across America or for Seuss' birthday week. 

We read The Foot Book and worked on antonyms. Afterwards, we made these fun little ants. 

I gave each of my students 2 sticky notes to record their antonyms on. 

This template is several years old, but it still works like a charm! You can download the template here

We also read Oh Say Can You Say and worked on alliterations. My students made alliterations using their names. I did this several years ago, but remade the template because the last one was pretty embarrassing!

My students thought these were just too funny!

You can download the templates here. 

And lastly, in math, we made these hot air balloons to go along with the story Oh the Places You Will Go using standard and expanded form.

I love how some of my students added details to their pictures! 

You can download the hot air balloon template here.

....and thanks to Pinterest, I was able to pull off being the Lorax for a day!

There you have it! Dr. Seuss celebrated in November! 
Happy weekend sweet friends!
