    I teach both Kindergarten and Preschool. Sometimes I have the same theme and have a hard time deciding what kind of activities to do with each, especially when it comes to the Preschool class.

    This March I want to do Dr. Seuss books. What Dr. Seuss books do you use and what are some activities do you do? I was thinking of doing green eggs an ham and of course we would have green eggs for snack. Any other ideas?

    Thanks for your help.

    I read Go, Dog. Go! which the children LOVED. Then the children made car tracks with race cars and paint. They cut random shapes out of fun foam (bright colors, easy to cut), then glued them together to make race cars to glue on their road. We also made dog portraits with black Sharpies and crayons that really came out wonderful.

    We are reading the little known "bartholomew and the oobleck" and making oobleck to play with. We are also going to make cat in the hat hats. And I am making a game for them to count the stripes on various hats, a large bean bag toss game for them to toss bean bags into the cats hat, and a listening activity to identify the sounds on a CD of sound effects. We will do this one after we read Mr. Brown Can Moo.

    That week is also Dental Health week for us, so we are incorporating the tooth book, and some tooth related activities! Good Luck!:thumb:
