Things, Wings, Dings, Zings: Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!!!

Dr. Seuss was one of the most Christian authors I can think of. The Grinch, Horton, the Sneetches: every one of them exemplifies Gospel kindness and caring.

So we are celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday this week with great joy.

Today, we made hats for Things with awesome blue hair. (Directions are below.)

We read Seuss books and watched Seuss videos. And we made our own Wocket in my Pocket book!

Wocket is a great book to learn the sound of rhymes … especially ridiculous rhymes. The kids giggled and hooted as we came up with crazy words along with real words to rhyme, for example, with hat: hat, cat, mat, sat, fat, pat, rat, bat, zat, lat, wat!

We wrote our book, illustrated it and displayed it in our classroom library, where it will stay for the rest of the year for the children to read and enjoy.

Want to make a Thing? Here are the directions!
