Hello there and welcome to another Tot School Tuesday!
Every week See Vanessa Craft and Mine for the Making team up to bring you ideas you can do at home with your tot or preschooler.
Did you know March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’ birthday?!
One of my most favorite children’s authors is Dr. Seuss and as a child, Green Eggs and Ham was my favorite book. When I was an elementary school teacher, 1-2 weeks in March were themed around Dr. Seuss. We own all but a few of his books and read them often.
Another favorite Dr. Seuss book of mine is Yertle the Turtle. Have you read it?
I won’t get the entire story away, but it’s about a turtle king how is a little too greedy. He orders the turtles to stack themselves so that he can sit on top of them and rule over more. You’ll have to read the story to see what happens *winks*
I created a “game” for my preschooler to play after we read the story. I made 5 turtles, all different sizes, and mixed them up. I handed her the pile and asked her to stack the turtles biggest to smallest and smallest to biggest (aka: math concept- ordering). She loved this and continued to mix them up and stack them several times.
Aren’t the turtles cute?
I used blue and white card stock I had on hand and allowed my Silhouette to do the rest. Nice and easy and only cost me $0.99 for the image.
I’ll be sharing more Dr. Seuss fun throughout this week and next so be sure to stop back by!
Head on over to See Vanessa Craft for more Tot School ideas.
