Dr. Seuss Week - March 3-7

What a wonderfully wacky week of fun we had at The Pa-Paw Patch last week!  We learned all about Dr. Seuss and found really fun ways to celebrate a lot of the books.  Here's our photo journal from the week.

The four-/five-year-olds loved doing Dr. Seuss week (they are even continuing this theme through this week along with the St. Patrick's week) and had some really neat stuff going on!

They had a whole crazy week, which included a pajama day, Wacky Wednesday, Thing 1 and Thing 2 Day, a silly hat or hair day, and a silly sock and shoe day.

So many feet!  Let's use them to learn!

Silly socks, just like the Fox in Socks!

We can make patterns with our shoes!

They also made Dr. Seuss trail mix, with jelly beans and Teddy Grahams to represent "The Lorax", circus peanuts to represent "Horton Hears a Who!", and goldfish for "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish".

As a math activity, they sorted out colored goldfish and counted how many of each color, then they made a graph of their findings.  A yummy snack!

They practiced ordinal numbers by putting apples in order from first to tenth, stacking them on a picture of their head.  Super cute!

The three-year-olds colored their own sock puppets ("Fox in Socks"), and they were so cute!  They also created a great bulletin board with handprint Thing 1s and Thing 2s and footprint cat in the hats.  Dr. Seuss quotes float in the clouds above!

The two-year-olds made handprint Thing 1s and Thing 2s.  They also made handprint Hortons with the quote, "A person's a person no matter how small!"  What a great quote!

The one-year-olds made handprint Hortons and used handprints to make a "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" sign.  Super cute!

We had a special treat from Ms. Melanie, who baked every room a Cat in the Hat cake as a surprise snack!  They turned out great and the kids loved it!

We have to also mention the four-/five-year-olds homework...FUN homework!  They asked each child to work with their families and make a sign that had a Dr. Seuss quote on it and was decorated.  The results were amazing, and so vibrant!

This week, we're gearing up for St. Patrick's Day as we learn about luck, the color green, and all the fun things that come with St. Patrick's Day!


  1. Wonderful variety of socks and shoes to choose. I am very glad that we can get socks and shoes together through your website by matching to each other.
