Lil Leprechaun Cuties & Highlights from Seuss Week


Are you ready for some green? Well, I know I am! {green grass, green flowers, green trees...sooo ready for spring!} Next week we will be starting on our Lil Leprechaun Cuties writing activity. My firsties have been on the lookout for leprechauns since March 1st so there's been lots of conversation about catching these sneaky little rascals. I can't wait to see what they write about! My "Lil Leprechaun Cuties Writing Craftivity" also includes a data collection activity. If you would like to see more, just click HERE!

OMIgoodness! we all just loved Dr. Seuss Week! All that super silly wacky rhyming brought a much need burst of energy to our classroom. {February is such a looooong month, isn't it?!?!} I had the kiddos make a list of rhyming words {real & silly words} and then write a silly Seussy sentence using as many of the words as they could.

"I have a pig and it is wharing a slig wig!" How Seussy!!!
Another great Seussy sentence: "The dragon rode in a bragon wagon with a stagon and a nagon."
If you would like a copy of this little reproducible, just click on either of the pics above!

After reading Green Eggs & Ham, I had the class look through magazines and cut out a picture of something that they would eat. Then we made this fun lil class book...

This was the example page that I did and then let them loose to create their page! Instead of "Sam I Am", they filled in their own names and some of the kiddos made rhymes and others didn't. But they were all very creative!{in a wacky Seussy way!}

This firstie is an AMAZING artist!!!
Too funny! I would eat Bagel Bites just about anywhere too!!! lol
Would you like a FREEBIE download of this class book? Just click HERE!!!

I also wanted to post a few pics of some of our kindergarten Seussy activities. Great job Jenny, Andrea, Kendra & Miranda! Your kinders did a GREAT job-they are just too stinkin' cute!

  2. That leprechaun is too cute!
    Love the class book idea, too!

    Last year I had a sneaky leprechaun- too many behavior issues this year- I don't think we could pull it off!

    I will save lots of your ideas for next year though!

    1. Hey Sophie! Our kindergarten teachers made those and I have no idea if they made the pattern or bought it. I just couldn't resist snapping a quick pic of the cuteness!

  12. Is there any way you could change the front page to say Second Graders instead of first graders on the download? I would love to do this with my kids!
