This Week in [Home]School - Celebrating Dr. Seuss

We LOVE Dr. Seuss.

Maybe I should say I love Dr. Seuss and therefore force my children to love his books as well.

I'm just being a good mom honest!

Here's a little of what we did to celebrate his 111th birthday...

We made Cat in the Hat hats by coloring stripes on white paper bags. Then wadded up paper and had several contests to see who could get the most wads in the hats.


We wrote and colored birthday cards for Dr. Seuss while watching The Cat in the Hat on PBS kids.



I printed out a bunch of fun pages from seussville.com, and Marie spent some time playing games on the website.


We went to the library for a little Dr. Seuss birthday party where they had a snack of a jello and whip cream parfait to look like the Cat's Hat.


We actually have 3 Dr. Seuss games. "I Can Do That Game," "Green Eggs and Ham," and a Dr. Seuss matching game. I need to play matching games more often. I think it's probably good exercise for my mommy brain.


We did other miscellaneous coloring pages and word searches and math pages.

This is Jack's! He said he wants to ride a helicopter when he grows up so he drew one. Can you find it? I think he did amazing!
I saved all the Lorax stuff for tonight because I wanted to watch The Lorax for family night only to realize that we don't own it and it is no longer on Netflix :( But we still made mustaches and watched Horton Hears a Who instead.


And of course, there was lots of reading of the greatest children's books ever written!


This week we were insanely busy. We only did school at home on Monday and today. So I have more fun plans to celebrate Dr. Seuss for next week. And hopefully get back into regular routine.

Need a Roger pic!

By the way, the Jacobs School is accepting any and all donations of Dr. Seuss (Theo Geisel) books and related movies ;)

Did you do anything special this week in school?
