Today was a Dr. Seuss day. We took a break from nutrition to do some activities inspired by the author in honor of his birthday.
Used toothpicks to count out 1-6 and place them on the 1fish 2 fish page from obseussed (no goldfish, and snowed in- we also had no pretzels, or small candies)… definitely a sad day.
I read them 2 online books and 4 regular books (and the 6 year old re-read the 4 regular books)
Writing for Dr. Seuss birthday. I differentiated for the kids by having the 3 year old write the letters, and the 6 year old write a word that goes with each letter, per instructions.
Episode of Cat in the Hat (afternoon treat!)

Unscrambled simple sight words inspired by The Lorax
Colored a pattern of numbers (up to 100) to reveal a Cat in the Hat!
Dr. Seuss ABC inspired ABC Order page (alligator, bumblebee, camel, doughnuts– sound familiar?!?)
Oh Say What Does it Say addition of 2-4 numbers (up to 25) to reveal a message (I can add with my eyes shut!)– this was too difficult, but if I’d waited until next year? Probably too easy.
