Resources for Celebrating the Birthday of Dr. Seuss

If he was alive today, tomorrow Dr. Seuss would be 108 years old. I loved reading his books when I was a child and I'm sure that many of you did too. As I do every year, I would like to share some resources for celebrating the birthday of Dr. Seuss.

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. The Seussville Story Maker which helps kids write a Dr. Seuss style story. To create their stories students select backgrounds and characters then write their stories. The Seussville Playground also offers a calendar of Dr. Seuss activities that teachers can use throughout the year.

Read Write Think has a good lesson plan based on the book Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? The lesson plan is designed for K-2 students to practice observing sounds and creating words from what they hear. 


Finally, any mention of Dr. Seuss has to include Green Eggs and Ham. A video of the story is embedded below.
