Dr. Seuss: The Perfect Source for Literacy!


Dr. Seuss:
The Perfect Source for Literacy!

 

March
2 is Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Although he died in 1991, his life is one to
celebrate every year. Why? The following explanation, found in an article
in Examiner.com, says it perfectly:

Not only are Dr. Seuss books fun, they can open the doors
of a child’s imagination. Several of his books even go a step further with
underlying messages of peace, acceptance and environmental awareness.

The
best source for ideas for using Dr. Seuss is the first site. It is truly amazing.
I’ve also listed other good sources for ideas, crafts, activities, and all
sorts of things.

Be
sure to check out the last few sites. They prove that Dr. Seuss had something
for all of us.

Seuss and his books. It has games and activities based on the books and on
individual characters. There is a section on where Seuss events are being held
around the nation. The Educator section has resources, news about special
events, and tips on how to use Seuss books in the classroom. The Parent section
has activities, crafts, recipes, printables, and other resources.
