With it being Dr. Seuss week, I came up with different activities to do with different books. We started out with Horton Hears A Who. My students absolutely loved this book. Throughout the book they were coming up with ideas on how they could save the speak. Once we got done with the reading, we talked about character traits with Horton. This is what they came up with....
Once we got done talking about the character traits, it was time to get them up and moving. I took words out of the story and made a hop scotch game out of it. I couldn't get them to stop going through the game. Some of my students I had to help with the words. This activity also worked with gross motor skills.
Another activity I did with them is I took two shower curtains and cut them apart, taped them together. Once that was done I had made pockets in them to be able to insert cards in them. I took words from the story and the kids got to walk like elephants across the curtains.
The students loved it! Tomorrow we are working on The Sneetches!
