Dr. Seuss=fun! I feel like we’ve had too many serious themes lately and I really wanted to take a break and just enjoy letting my three year old be three! Play and silliness are just as important as letters and numbers in my book. In that spirit, we got out every crazy Dr. Seuss book we own and checked out every Seuss the library had in stock. I was easily able pin at least one corresponding activity for each book and I get the impression my “not easily impressed” child loved them all. The most awesome activities were making oobleck and hopping on bubble wrap for the book “Hop on Pop” but honestly I highly recommend them all so definitely check out the PDF on this one!! I also loved that just by reading so much Dr. Seuss Taegan really picked up on what a rhyme is. By the end of the theme she was making up her own rhyming words and asking me non-stop if they were correct. She got a few sounds mixed up and a lot of the sounds were correct but words were often made up. Regardless, for the most part they did rhyme so I’m happy to check this skill off the list of things I need to focus on.
