Dr. Seuss Days and FREEBIES!

Well my week of Dr. Seuss fun was cut short by the snow days but we finished up our fun this week and I wanted to share it all with you!  March is National Reading Month so any of these activities would be especially good through the end of the month!
We had a mystery reader scheduled each day, but only got to two because of the snow days!
For Dr. Seuss math we honored his birthday by graphing our class birthdays using this pack I found for FREE on Teachers Pay Teachers. 
We also did a fun Silly Cat with a Hat mystery picture that reviewed money, tally marks, place value, and double digit addition without regrouping.  This was the perfect review after all those days off. You can grab this in my TPT store!

We also read this great non-fiction book about Dr. Seuss and also talked about biography genre.  This is another amazing FREE book I found on Teachers Pay Teachers.  Click on the cover page to head on over to her TPT store.  After we read the book and did a bit discussion I had each child write a fact they learned on a little hat and we made a big poster!  If you would like a FREE copy of the hats just click on the picture for the download.
We also did a little arts and crafts using Mrs. White's from First Grade Blue Skies Cat in the Hat craft!  Head to her page to grab yourself a copy.  They are adorable!
Since March is all about reading and we were celebrating a great author I thought it would be a good opportunity to talk about genre.  I saved up some old Scholastic Reading Club magazines and got some plain white printer paper and I was ready to go.  No prep, engaging, and rigorous for the kids - Win, Win, Win!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!
