3 Ways to Seussify your Sessions this March

1 Mar

As you can tell from some of my previous blog posts, I’m all about using the brilliance of Dr. Seuss in my sessions every March for Read Across America Day. Check out these 3 fun ideas I’m using in sessions this month to celebrate Dr. Seusss

 

  1. Singable books! Some favorites are Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb and My Many Colored Days.  For “Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb,” I have a cute monkey stuffed animal that we’ll use to work on body identification and following directions by having him play the drum like the monkeys in the book. “My Many Colored Days” works great for little ones learning about colors, so I love to have my kiddos search for instruments to play that match the colors on each page.Screen Shot 2016-02-16 at 11.25.41 AM
  2. “Green Eggs and Ham” from The Learning Station. I’ve used these fabulous visuals from Mommy Lessons 101 and an adapted version of “Green Eggs and Ham” to target anything from sight words to music note learning. I laminated the eggs and use dry erase marker to write targeted concepts, activities or conversation starters on the backs. Sing the song, flip over an egg, and complete the task on the other side!

3. Dr. Seuss rhyming. I made some basic picture/word cards for some IEP students working on rhyming goals, and find they work GREAT for simple rhythm or songwriting activities. You can either use the cards as a jumping off point and have students draw one card and rap or drum rhyming words they can think of, or have them look for the sets of matching rhymes. Simply download them for {FREE}, laminate and use! There are also other great Seuss-themed cards available for free at Sweet Rose Studio.
