I picked six objects from the book (cup, hat, fish, ship, ball, book) and five body parts (hand, foot, chin, head, elbows, legs) and put the names of the objects (in French) into two photo-cubes:
Once the girls had enough of the balancing game, we played "What's in the Hat" by hiding different objects in the Dr. Seuss hat and then trying to guess what's inside or putting multiple objects inside and trying to find something specific using sense of touch (this is a variation of a Montessori Mystery Bag game):
When we read The Cat in the Hat after playing the game, the girls had a new appreciation for the amazing balancing act the cat performs. They also could recognize some of the objects by their French names.
Other Seuss activities we've done this week include:
- Yertle the Turtle Number Craft
- Green Eggs and Ham: Try New Food Challenge
- The Shape of Me and Other Stuff
