Seuss in the Summer (K-2)
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." - Dr. Seuss
In this course, students will learn about Theodore Seuss Geisel, better known to the world as the beloved Dr. Seuss. Did you know he used only 236 words to write his classic story The Cat in the Hat? The children will be challenged to write class story using only the 236 words that Dr. Seuss used in this story! We will utilize our imaginations and art skills as we explore And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street and If I Ran the Circus. Our hands will be busy as we make the oobleck that fell from the sky in Bartholomew and the Oobleck. We will rhyme, make patterns, and compare and contrast with One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish and Hooray for Diffendoofer Day! Using Gertrude Mc Fuzz and My Many Colored Days, we will realize that we are different from one another and are meant to be the way we are because that is how we should be. Throughout this class, students will be engaged in literature and will be encouraged to share any of their favorite books written by Dr. Seuss.
