Then after reading Cat in the Hat, we wrote about the mischief Thing 1 or Thing 2 would cause if they came to our house or school. One student wrote that Thing 1 and 2 came to school and wrapped me up in a cloth and stole all of our books! We followed our writing with handprint Thing 1s. I found that great idea on the Tickled to Teach blog.
So...we will be writing about our favorite Dr. Seuss book on Monday in the new books we made and then move back into our regular Superkids reading curriculum. Next year I need to start these activities a little earlier in the week and on Dr. Seuss Day we will just read!
