We read the book "The cat in the hat" by Dr Seuss over a period of 3 weeks. Amazingly, the children sat quietly, enthralled with the cat's antics! On the first and second week of the reading, we made ourselves into the Cat in the hat, one of Dr Seuss amazing character thanks to this free template found here : http://www.datemplate.com/post_cat-in-the-hat-template_10862/ . The students practiced fine motor skills of gluing and pasting the different pieces and joining them all together. On the 3rd and final week of the reading and in connection to their classroom Unit of Inquiry (Communication) we also practiced gross motor skills by identifying and doing the action words from the book like run, jump, hop, bow, kick, sit, and fall.
