{Dr. Seuss is on the Loose...}

I don't know about you but I am not a HUGE fan of Dr. Seuss... I mean I like him enough and I grew up on many of his books but doing a whole thematic unit on him in preschool is a little rough-or at least that's how it was the past couple of years... However, this year I might be singing a different tune... I did things a little different this time and I will admit I had FUN! gasp! I know...

1. Thing 1 and Thing 2...Totally Pinterest inspired.. 

2. Top Hats.. Also found on Pinterest...that place is so addicting...

3. Cat in the Hat

4. Word Search after we read I Can Read with My Eyes Shut

5. Oobleck.. I think I needed to add more water.. but the kids still had a blast!

6. After reading One Fish, Two Fish  the kids drew an underwater scene on fish bowl shaped paper and watercolored.. they loved using these paints and worked for a long time...

7. Practicing rhymes

This week we are celebrating St. Patrick's Day!! Stay tuned...

{The Zoo...Part Deux..}

3. Zebra Stripes

4. Investigating our fingerprints and graphing which ones we have...

6. "At the zoo I see a..."
We charted our sentences earlier in the week and I types them out for this activity... original found at Little Giraffes

7. Anchor Charts..we had one for each animal.. the kids shared a piece of knowledge and added it to our chart..

We also did the alligators found at krazyforkindergarten but I happened to be out that day so I didn't take pictures...

Hello all you wonderful bloggers! I hope the weekend is treating you well-- So I am playing catch-up and as usual will be posting three blogs back to back to back...Here is what the Fantastic Frogs did when we learned about Zoo Animals [Part I].. The ideas for the art projects came from many sources including Julie Lee's Blog and krazyforkindergarten... This blog has lots of fun stuff but the creator has since moved to 3rd grade...
 Hope you enjoy!
