Read Across America Day Celebration

Read Across America Day celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday is Saturday, March 2nd.  This year many schools will be celebrating this day on Friday, March 1st.  We have created some activities to help get you started with your celebration.

Dr. Seuss Workmat   This printable includes a maze, a wordsearch and a spot for kids to draw their favorite Dr. Seuss character.

Create a Character  Students create their own Dr. Seuss like character on this printable.  At the bottom, have them describe their character.

My Favorite Dr. Seuss Book   After sharing many books, have students draw a picture to show their favorite.  This will make a great classroom display with little work from you!

I Can Read…   After reading The Cat in the Hat, have students make their own Read Across America class book.   Instead of “I can eat them in a…” studens will write their own page to the book sharing where they can read.

Dr. Seuss Bookmarks   Print and laminate these bookmarks for a fun treat!
