Celebrating Read Across America with Dr. Seuss

February 24, 2018 3 Comments

dr seuss one fish two fishOne of the most well known and beloved children’s author for generations is Dr. Seuss. His unique characters combined with lyrical use of rhyme has made him a popular choice for early readers. Both of my children memorized the words to One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish long before they could actually read the text. Now in their twenties, they can still recite lines from their favorite Dr. Seuss  stories.

On March 2nd, schools across America will be celebrating his lifetime of achievements. Commonly known as Read Across America, classrooms and students will enjoy some fun and fantasy Dr. Seuss style.

So with that in mind, I wanted to share with you some FREE ideas and resources to add some fun to your day 🙂


Who doesn’t love Bartholomew and the Oobleck? Make some of your own green gak with this recipe.

Make this adorable craft by tracing the kids hands. This idea is one of many from Kindergarten teacher Vanessa Dewey.
