Seuss Week!

Here’s what is in my math and literacy center drawers for Seuss week!

Math Centers:

We’re still practicing with combining two numbers to find the sum.

Here the children will spin the spinner and fill in the missing number.

Here the children will practice subtraction.IMG_2888

The children will practice counting coins by 1s, 5s, and 10s.

And counting teen numbers, filling in 10 frames, and tallying! Phew! big job at this center!

Literacy Centers:

I decided to use my Lakeshore blend manipulatives with this center instead of rolling the dice.

Here the children will pull a picture out of a pocket and write the word and a word that rhymes with it.  I hadn’t finished the pockets while I was at school, but here’s a picture of them!IMG_2896

When you make them, it really isn’t necessary to glue them, but it helps.  Just make sure when you cut them out of the lamination you leave a bit of plastic around the edges.  I actually laminated mine twice for “safety.”  I’m sure I’ll still end up taping the ends because we all know some little ones are not gentle with our supplies Smile

At this center, the kids will roll an onset dice and a rhyme dice to make a real or nonsense word.

Here the children are sorting short e word family words.IMG_2895

And last, but not least, an old favorite! Reading, stamping and writing sight words.

Here’s our plan for this week:

Tuesday – Silly Socks Day

Wednesday – Wacky Wednesday

Thursday – Crazy hat day

Friday – RED Day* and Green Eggs and Ham!

*This is a special even that we hold every month or so at our school, this time it falls on Dr. Seuss’s birthday! We are having a storyteller come into to “storytell” to all the students and then parents are invited back to the classroom to read with their kiddos! The children LOVE it, and it’s a great way to promote reading.  We give away lots of prizes too!  Everyone wears red that day, so I figured it would be a great day to make some “thing 1 and thing 2” hats as well. 

Our reading specialists have also made a very special reading room that we can take our kiddos to throughout the week and there are stop, flop and read stations throughout the hallways.  I’ll snap some pics this week and show them to you!

We’re still finishing up our American symbols studies – I’ll try to be back later in the week with some more pictures.

Happy Seuss week!

Do you have anything special planned?

    Tuesday- Crazy Hat, got my Dr. Seuss hat ready to go.
    Wednesday- Wear green- will ahem to go shopping
    Thursday-Re, White & Black Day- Just about all I do wear. Literacy Night
    Friday- Crazy Hair Day- Ugh, plus it is incomming Kindergarten family tour day.
    Have a great week- can't wait to read about it.

  3. HI Kathleen! I love your ideas! I am so excited to grab them on TPT. I just posted a glyph on my blog that we are going to do AND I get to dress up at the Cat this year! I have a student teacher, so I get to do it since she is teaching so many areas right now. I am so excited! I hope you enjoy your week!
