Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

March 2nd is Dr. Seuss' birthday.

This year my class did a home project-Book Reports!

On Friday the children shared their reports with each other during our first Book Talk and Walk and then with the class.  They did such a nice job!

We also made Cat in the Hat pictures and hats.  Here are the steps on how to make the cutest Cat in the Hat hats ever!

Materials:

18x24 inch white paper.
18x24 inch red paper
stapler
glue
tape
12x18 white paper

Directions:

Measure each child's head with the 18x24 inch white paper.  (These hats are tall!)  Staple to hold in place.

Cut 18x24 inch red paper in half.  Fold it so that there are four long, skinny straight strips.  Cut or have children cut.

Have students glue red strip to top of had and then leave a white space, glue another red, etc to make a pattern.


Brim Directions:

Trace circle around base of hat.

Draw a 2-3 inch larger circle around this circle.  Inside the circle draw tabs.  Cut out the middle.  See picture.

Cut and fold up tabs.

Tape/glue tabs inside tall part of hat.


Ta Da!  You did it!


Celebrate today by taking a picture with Cat in the Hat!
