With Read Across American week in full swing and Dr. Seuss's birthday coming up tomorrow, we thought we'd share some great Seuss-inspired lesson printables we found at A Teaching Mommy. Each activity in the unit takes its theme from a different Seuss classic {9 in total!} and focuses on building language arts or math skills, with some "just for fun" exercises thrown in as well! Here are a few of our top picks from Amber's Dr. Seuss Unit!

Language Arts

  • Based on Dr. Seuss's Hop on Pop, introduce your students to simple rhyming sounds {specifically "at"} with this fun flip book activity. After coloring and assembling the books, students will be able to "read" by themselves, taking cues from the pictures on each page, as they match the page letter to the base sound.
  • Help your preschoolers learn to identify letter sounds the Horton Hears A Who! way. Providing each student with an entire alphabet of letter stickers (letter stencils or stamps would also work) and a variety of graphic art tools, invite your students to decorate their Horton printables. Once complete, play the "Horton Hears A..." letter game where a letter sound is called aloud and students point to the correct letter on their worksheet.


  • Have your students practice graphing with this fun Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? dice game. Students roll the customized die featuring different character sounds then make a mark (or place a special sticker) on their graph next to the book character who makes the sound. The game ends when one column has ten marks. Discuss the results as a class using terms like more than, less than, most, least, tallest, shortest, taller than, shorter than, etc.
  • Seuss's The Foot Book offers a great opportunity for practice with non-standard measuring tools - feet! Students are sent on a "treasure hunt" around the classroom for items noted on the printable and asked to measure these objects in "feet units". Have students use their actual feet, feet cutouts, or store-bought feet measuring tools to measure, then color in the proper number on their worksheet.
