Dr. Seuss

Two Week Lesson Plan Schedule

Reading Dr. Seuss is a great way to introduce literacy to young learners. His books are fun to read and coordinate great with many fun themes. Use these ideas for a daily dose of Dr. Seuss for two weeks. At the end of the schedule, each child will have a fantastic art project to take home.

Read Across America Each year the National Education Association hosts Read Across America — an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on or near March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. NEA's Read Across America also provides NEA members, parents, caregivers, and children the resources and activities they need to keep reading on the calendar 365 days a year.

National Reading Week is the first full week in March, and National Reading Month is all of March.

Our Dr. Seuss lesson plans integrate all subject areas including science, social studies, character counts and of course math and reading. You can adjust each day's activity from a quick art project to a complete lesson that meets state and common core objectives. That flexibility also allows the teacher to adapt the lessons to multiple grade levels, or to differentiate instruction to each of her students' ability levels. The lessons are perfect for whole class, small group, or centers. You decide!
