“Feeding” cards to the Cat in the Hat, is a quick, easy and fun way to review all sorts of standards. Simply print, laminate and trim the “food” cards
These are mini cards that include upper andlowercase letters, numbers from 0-120, 11 number word cards, twelve 2D shape cards, twelve 3D shape cards, 35 contraction cards, 20 at family word cards, and 11 color word cards!
I chose bright neon-colors, for that extra touch of Seuss-pizzazz. There’s also a set of blank tiles for you to fill in with whatever else you want to review or practice.
I bought my red bucket from The Dollar Store, printed the cat off on card stock, then taped it to the inside. Easy Peasy.
I’ve included 4 little signs that you can use to decorate your container with, or sprinkle on a bulletin board.
Keep each set of “food” cards in Snack Baggies and store them in your container.
To play, simply pass out whatever cards you want to practice with, then call out a word, letter, number etc.
The child holding that card comes up, reads and shows it, so everyone can repeat what they said. That student then “feeds” the hungry Cat in the Hat.
Besides “feeding” the Cat in the Hat, make extra sets of the cards to play all sorts of games. I’ve included tip lists suggesting more activities, plus the “Kaboom!” game.
There’s also a set of math symbols as well, so you can use the number cards for other math activities, like making up equations and solving them, plus showing greater & less than.
Students can also sort the number cards into odd and even piles and sequence them. Play Memory Match or “I Have; Who Has?” games with the number word cards and their matching number cards.
The shape cards, as well as the color cards, work in the same way. You can also play these games with the letter cards, matching an uppercase letter to a lowercase one.
I’ve included an at word family worksheet in the packet at well.
