Well, it’s not a national “Dr. Seuss week” but here in our humble abode, we are going all out Suess.
Since I created Sonny’s curriculum for the summer, I had to make sure to at least dedicate a few weeks to the grand Doctor, and this week is the first of 3. Thankfully, the In Laws made sure that he was blessed with almost the whole collection of the books, so we had to take advantage of it. Each week we’ll end with the bigger classics, like Horton Hears a Who(my personal favorite), how the Grinch stole Christmas and finally, The Cat in the Hat.
Not only is the boy excited, but his geek parents are too. Hubby said I have to wait for him to be home before we make our “Cat in the Hat” hats out of toilet paper rolls because he doesn’t want to miss it! The nerve of this man! But, I can understand him. If I was him, I’d be pissed to miss it too lol.
So far, “summer learning” has been going so well and this week is one of the biggest examples of it. With me being tired, it is real work for me, but it’s so worth it.
Now a few questions for you all:
1. any teachers out there that have done a curriculum around Dr. Seuss books? Any cool worksheets or activities you can share?
2. Avid lovers of books, children or not: what book would you love to plan a curriculum around?(Don’t say the Giving Tree…it’s on the list).
