Dr. Seuss's Birthday


This week we'll be celebrating Dr. Seuss' s birthday. We've got lots of activities planned and we thought we'd share what we're doing with you all!

Dr. Seuss Facts Hat
We enlarge and copy our hats (see below for printable) on a white 9x12 piece of construction paper. First our kids cut out the hats. Next they glue four red strips (9 x 2 1/2) onto the hat. Then, once the glue is dry and the red strips are well in place, they flip the hat over, and cut off the extra red pieces.
Finally we write important facts about Dr. Seuss.
Here are some treats we're giving to our first graders. We found some mini stickers perfect for their Dr. Seuss activities that are created throughout the week. The pencils were from the dollar bin at Michael's, great deal! We also made treat toppers to attach to York Peppermint Patties. We sure wish the patties were wrapped like they were in the past,
but they still look cute! If you'd like a copy of the treat toppers, just click {HERE} and download our little freebie! We used a 2 inch scallop punch and they turned out perfect!
We also like to do a cute picture glyph with our first graders every year on March 2nd!
We got the idea from The Virtual Vine. We made our own direction page and it can be found {HERE} along with a few other freebies to share with you all!

We're super excited to announce that Teachers Pay Teachers is having a Leap Day Sale!
On Wednesday only we will be offering 20% off of EVERYTHING in our store! TpT will offer an additional 10% off when you enter L2P9Y at checkout. So if you'd like some items from our store, just click the picture below and start making your wish list!


Hope you all have a fabulous week!
