Dr. Seuss Printables

I love to read.  LOVE.  Whenever I walk into a bookstore I always take a deep breath and I just feel at home.   Books are my escape, my favorite way to spend an afternoon, and my must have at all times.  I’ve always been that way, ever since I was a little girl.  I was the child who read under the blankets at night with a flashlight because I just had to know how Nancy Drew was going to solve the Mystery of the 99 Steps.  Or what happened to Laura Ingalls on her first day of school on the banks of Plum Creek.  I traveled with Lucy and Susan through Narnia, cried when Billy buried his beloved red coonhounds, and hid alongside Ellen and Annemarie during the Occupation of Denmark.   I am so grateful that a love of reading was instilled in me when I was young, (thanks mom and dad!) and I’ve seen the benefits in everything from my education, to career, to personal life.  Reading, and loving to read, is one of the most important things we can teach our children.

The first weekend in March is a great time to plan some reading activities and get your little ones excited about reading.  Why?  Well in case you didn’t know March 1st is National Read Across America Day and March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’s birthday!  What child doesn’t love Dr. Seuss?  What adult doesn’t for that matter!?  His books are classics and the lessons learned are timeless.  I’ve created a set of Dr. Seuss themed printables to use for this day, or anytime you want to emphasize reading.  There is a reading chart, two different bookmarks, and a door hanger in bright and fun colors.

What exactly is Read Across America Day?  From the official website: NEA’s Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss.

How to celebrate?

-Visit your local library or bookstore.  Find new books to read, or get reacquainted with an old favorite.

- Make a whole Seuss-ical weekend.  Have green eggs and ham for breakfast. Read Dr. Seuss books, snuggle up with some popcorn and watch the movies at night.

- Make some fun crafts!  Make your own Cat in the Hat hats, the fluffy trees from the Lorax, or color fishes from One Fish, Two Fish.

    I was a kindergarten teacher and I know the importance of teaching your children to read and to love it. I taught each of my children to read before they went to school and Dr. Seuss books were the ones I used to. Now I can encourage my grandchildren to read. Thanks for the wonderful tags and charts!
