Did you know that Friday is National Read Across America Day? Then, Saturday, March 2nd, is the birthday of the fabulous Dr. Seuss! So, teachers everywhere (especially of elementary students) are looking doing fun reading & Dr. Seuss inspired activities this week! But, why limited it to just school? There are many ways that you can celebrate Dr. Seuss & reading at home! Here are 5 simple ideas!
1. Make a Dr. Seuss Inspired Reading Chart! We just did this at our house and our kindergartner is LOVING it! He loves having a fun way to track his reading progress.
2. Plan a fun Dr. Seuss Birthday Dinner! Green eggs & ham is an obvious, yet really simple go-to choice! You can’t go wrong with some delicious ham & green-deviled eggs! Yum! For extra fun, read the book just before or even during dinner!
3. Visit Seussville! It is a FANTASTIC site for all things “Seuss”. There is a section with games & activities, plus a tab for parents! You’re sure to find some great tips or ideas there.
4. Watch “Cat in the Hat Knows A LOT about That!” on PBS Kids! It’s one of my boys’ favorite shows! On Friday, March 1st, PBS will be celebrating Dr. Seuss with all-new content, including two new episodes of “Cat in the Hat Knows A LOT about That!”
5. Read together! The absolute best way to celebrate is by reading with/to your kids! It’s the simplest & most obvious thing to do. Grab a Dr. Seuss book or any ‘ole family favorite and enjoy some quality time together!
