Oops! I forgot about Read Across America Day! This is the last year of Seuss. It’ll be interesting to see what happens next year on Read Across America Day.
I forgot to take pictures of the actual pattern portion. But I cut out four of the Cat in the Hat’s hat and colored them in with different patterns. I then cut out a variety of stripes, and the kids had to recreate the pattern on the hat templates I created. The back of each pattern also had suggested extension activities like extending the pattern, how many red stripes etc.
The fish are of varying size and colors, and some I drew hearts and dots on. I had the kids sort the fish by size, color, hearts, polka dots, and asked if they could think of any other way to sort the fish.
Overall, this was a fun program. We did it as a passive program, but in the future I think I’d run it as an hour long toddler/preschool STEM program.
