Dr. Seuss day is upon us, and it’s a day you should most definitely be celebrating with your little ones and what better way to celebrate than some Cat in the Hat Puzzles! Who doesn’t like an excuse to eat tons of Swedish fish in the name of One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish? Or to jump on bubble wrap after reading Hop on Pop. Or to cook up some green eggs for breakfast before reading Green Eggs and Ham. Can you tell I’m excited?
While you’re at it, make sure you take a look at your local library’s calendar- they’re certain to have special events occurring in celebration of Dr. Seuss.
Along with the obvious reading of all of our Dr. Seuss books, I have a few Seuss related activities for the girls that I’m excited to try out. I’m really looking forward to trying our hand at some very simple spelling use our The Cat in the Hat puzzles.
- Letter recognition
- Spelling/sight word practice
To make your puzzle pieces begin with your red and white construction paper. Fold the paper into fourths, and than cut along the line to create 4 equally sized strips.
Fold the black paper into thirds, than cut along the lines to create 3 equally sized strips.
Once all of your strips are cut out, use your marker to label the red and white strips with the letters needed to spell your child’s name (or sight words).
I chose to laminate my pieces since my children tend to destroy things in the blink of an eye. In case you haven’t heard me rave about my little laminator before, I’ll tell you again- best investment ever!!
