A Day of SNEETCHES & 2 Dr. Seuss Freebies!

Right to Read Week is right around the corner and I have been working on a fun Dr. Seuss unit for my kiddos at school.  My very favorite Dr. Seuss book is The Sneetches and it leads right into some great connections to our cultural diversity activities from February. 
Check out the fun time my kiddos are going to have with
The Great Sneetch Sheets. 
My plan is to read The Sneetches with my kiddos and do some prereading, during reading, and after reading activities.  
 I am going to hide the stars under their seats and after the reading I will have them check their chairs.  I have pins ready to pin them on to their shirts so my 2nd graders can spend the day as SNEETCHES.
Grab a copy a copy of my The Great SNEECH Sheets
You will be all set to celebrate in true SNEETCH style!

I am going to spend the day as a TEACH!  
I am going to dress in one color and add a feather boa around my neck!
Add the word TEACH to my star and I will be all set!

I have a center board ready for them to begin their rotation through my 4 SNEETCH Centers...including a SNEETCH Snack!
During this time, I plan on calling my 2nd graders over to print their hands and arms in yellow tempra paint.  We are going to end this fun filled day with a Heart Bellied SNEETCH Creation!

I also plan to read The Lorax since the movie is coming out!

Pictured above is the book The Lorax, some "Truffula Seeds" to inspire writing and also my writing mini unit The Tale of a Truffula Seed.
