It is that time of year again to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday! I thought this would be the perfect time to remind you of the entertaining online resources that your students can enjoy during computer time, centers, or free time. Many of you probably already have Seussville and PBS Kids' The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! bookmarked on your computer; however, if you haven't had a chance to check out all the fun activities and resources here is quick snapshot of them.
The "Games & Activities" are of course the most popular spot to be! Students have tons of choices to pick from such as rhymes, word searches, matching, shapes, same or different, and a lot more.
One of my favorite Seussville activities to recommend is the Storybook Maker. This activity allows students to create a three scene story similar to creating a comic strip. It targets reading and writing skills in a fun, interactive way. Students first start out by picking their background (setting), characters, music, and type the text or dialogue they want the characters to say. The process is repeated for each scene. When they finish they can watch each scene unfold.
Other things to explore on Seussville are the short-clip videos, learning about every character from all of Dr. Seuss' books, and the educator section for printables and classroom resources.
PBS Kids also has oodles of educational interactives to play from The Cat in the Hat Know a Lot About That!
