Dr. Seuss Last Minute Inspirations

As we all know tomorrow is Dr. Seuss's birthday.  I found several last minute resources that may help in preparation for the big celebration.  I printed several activities to do with Alyssa.  I never did find exactly what I was looking for but I am happy with the resources I did find.

Lil' Country Kindergarten has adorable calendar pieces.  Alyssa and I haven't done calendar time in while but I couldn't resist printing out these for the month of March.  The calendar pieces show an ABCD pattern.  She has other Dr. Seuss printables available for sale in her TpT store.  There is another set of Dr. Seuss calendar numbers found at TpT by Jamie Mayas

Lil' Country Kindergarten has also organized a March Math and Literacy Station Linky Party which includes Dr. Seuss, St. Patrick's Day, and Spring themes.  Check out the resources available on her blog.  Click on the link button and a list of resources becomes available.  There's a neat hundreds chart, place value game, sight word stamping, a reader, and fact family work.

Obseussed Link Collection - This is also a linky collection of Dr. Seuss ideas.
