Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss - Free Dr. Seuss Preschool Activities
It's time to light some oversized candles on a wacky cake and wish happy birthday to one of the world's most innovative children's authors - Dr. Seuss. If it weren't for Dr. Seuss, The Cat in the Hat probably wouldn't even exist. And no one would have the pleasure of actually trying to make green eggs and ham. And when people unexpectedly talk in rhyme when trying to make a point we could never retort, "Who are you? Dr. Seuss?" Without Dr. Seuss's bright books and wacky stories, many beginning readers would have had to suffer through beginning reading instruction with a Dick and Jane book.
To celebrate this author, we are going to crack open a handful of his books today. My kids got two sets of Seuss books for Christmas one year, so there are very few that we're still missing. We're also gonna spend some time over at
Seussville, playing online games and printing out fun activities. I've already got my printer set to spit out Dr. Seuss's activity book.
And to quote Dr. Seuss, make sure you remind your little one that: "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose." Happy Homeschooling!
