Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Did you know that today is the birthday of Dr. Seuss? I didn't until I saw that the Google homepage had been changed to spell Google with characters from Dr. Seuss stories. Therefore, it's only appropriate that share some Dr. Seuss online activities and lesson ideas.

The Seussville Playground has fun online games that kids can play and printable resources for offline use. The games and the printable resources are designed with themes to match various Dr. Seuss books. One of the printable resources that I think would be fun for K-2 teachers is the "I Did Something Good" certificate created with a Horton Hears a Who theme. Another online activity in the Seussville Playground is the Seussville Story Maker which helps kids write a Dr. Seuss style story.

The Dr. Seuss Wiki created by Kathy Korty has a nice collection of Dr. Seuss based lesson ideas and activities.

Read Write Think has a good lesson plan based on the book Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?
