Want to get your students to branch out in the types of books they read? Then try doing a Book Tasting. A book tasting is a chance for students to sample different types of books for a short time to expose them to new genres.
Hop on over to my blog by clicking here or on the picture above to see how I set up a book tasting and get your free book tasting pack which includes all the PowerPoints and activity sheets you need for your own book tasting.
Practice number sense with these quick, easy and fun Seuss-hat worksheets. Start with zero or mix them up and do one each day.
Great for whole-group assessing, home-school connections (homework), early finishers, or a sub folder too.
Children trace and write the numbers and number words, they X-off the appropriate amount in the 10 frame boxes, color that many circles in the group/set, circle the number in the sequence, then tally that many marks.
For more advanced students, use the "Show Me the Number" worksheet, which practices lots of math standards. Interest remains high, no matter how often you use this worksheet, as the number changes daily.
Teachers can assign the number, give students a choice, or make it a game & have them roll dice to arrive at the number they will use to complete their worksheet.
There's a large worksheet, plus one with two-on-a-page for quick printing.
So you can explain what you want your kiddos to do, I've included completed samples of both worksheets.
To help build vocabulary, there's also a helpful math-symbol bookmark, in a hat shape of course.
It is written by P. D. Eastman and is edited by
Dr. Seuss! It is a silly read and primary children just love it! It is perfect to add to your Dr. Seuss files for your celebrations on March 2nd, National Read Across America and the birthday of Dr. Seuss. I also have other resources and links to the National Education Association's National Read Across America Day website for more freebies!
Practice 2D, as well as 3D shapes, with these two "Shaping Up With Seuss" & "Flipping Over Shapes"emergent reader flip booklets.
Students read the simple sentences, underline the capital letters and add end punctuation.
They trace and write shape words, then trace, color and draw the various shapes.
Gluing the top square to their Cat in the Hat hat, then snipping on the lines, creates a "flip the flaps" booklet. To reinforce concepts of print, when everyone is done, read the booklets together as a whole group.
For more practice, I've also included a shape graphing worksheet.
Fractions can be such a tough concept for students to master, and it's important to make reviewing them fun. I created this Color by Number for Big Kids freebie in order to give my students a fun way to review adding fractions with unlike denominators! To complete this activity, they will use the fraction sums to color in this adorable leprechaun and when colored, the picture made an adorable classroom or hallway display! This freebie is perfect for St. Patrick's Day, and you can use it in your classroom as a center, for fast finishers, enrichment, review, or to supplement your adding fractions unit!

I have a quick and easy fact and opinion freebie for you that is PERFECT for March and Women's History Month!
This was a great pre-assessment for me as we started to explore fact and opinion in our classroom. I've also had great success using it as a partner activity and as a post-assessment for our Susan B. Anthony unit here in Georgia.

Do you celebrate Dr. Seuss during March is Reading Month? If so, I have some interesting activities for you.
Linda, over at My Clip Art Store designed some adorable Seuss-inspired clip art and I went rather crazy designing all sorts of fun stuff!
Set them up as independent centers, partner games, or whole group activities. Children can play a variety of games with the Seuss alphabet and number cards. I've included a list of ideas and games in the packet.
The Seuss-themed puzzles will help your kiddos sequence numbers, count forwards & backwards, as well as skip count by 10s to 100.
Finally, reward the game winners, or all of your kiddos, with a bookmark.
I made up 14, eight of which have some favorite quotes by Dr. Seuss on them.
