Oh, The Fun You Can Have!
A school year is a long time, and takes a lot of work! By March, you might be feeling like you and your little one both need something to help shake up your everyday learning routine. It’s tough to balance having fun with keeping it educational sometimes, but fortunately, with March arrives the perfect combination of the two with everybody’s favorite silly and wise author: Dr. Seuss! Well-known as the author of 60(!) children’s books, Theodore Geisel, who operated under the pen name of Dr. Seuss, has been beloved by educators, parents and little ones alike for many many years. Dr. Seuss’ birthday is also important because it kicks off the month of March, which is National Reading Month, so it’s the perfect day to grab a book and read til you can’t read any more. From Fox In Sox, The Lorax, Green Eggs and Ham and How The Grinch Stole Christmas, there are so many stories to choose from that will teach your little ones important lessons while having the most fun doing it!
If you and your little one homeschool, it’s the perfect opportunity to infuse your curriculum with activities related to the colorful world of Seuss! There are already so many fun games created with the books of Dr. Seuss in mind, but there is also so much room for you to get creative and make up games of your own-- think of the possibilities of One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. You can also adapt lesson plans based on the tales from books. Does your little one love The Lorax? Maybe try a lesson with an environmental plan!
There are so many other amazing activities that you and your little one can incorporate into your day to celebrate Dr. Seuss in a learning way! Here are some other fun ideas you can add into your curriculum based on your little one’s favorite book:
