How the Grinch Stole Christmas - Listening Library,Walter Matthau,Dr. Seuss

How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Suess is one of my favorite books I've ever read. Although its very simple, It's so fun and has a great moral behind it so of course i would recommend reading it in the classrooms. The book is about the mean ole Grinch in Whoville who tries to put a stop to Christmas. Cindy Lou Who teaches the town and the Grinch that Christmas is't just about at the presents of the material things. Christmas is about being together and the things that don;t come wrapped in perfect little bows or cost a lot of money. Family and the people you are with mean the most. I would rate this book a five out of five and it is listed as a on the Lexile scale as a 510L. An activity I would get my students to do would be to complete a story map of the book. I would then want for them to illustrate the events of the story they have included in their map.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! - Dr. Seuss

This is one of my favorite stories ever; it cracks me up every time! The Grinch hates Christmas and plans to “steal” the holiday from the Whos. He pretends to be Santa and steals everyone’s presents and decorations. After the fact, the Whos all still find a way to celebrate, because they know that the true meaning of Christmas is not about the presents or decorations. When the Grinch sees this, he realizes that he misunderstood what Christmas is truly about.

 

 

In the classroom, this would be a great Christmas time read. Students could be reminded that the true meaning of Christmas (and other holidays) is about family and being together, not about presents.

Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss

This book is always a fun read, at any age. Sam-I-Am makes a valiant effort to make the other character try green eggs and ham, but he claims that he doesn’t like green eggs and ham. Sam-I-Am offers suggestions of where the character could eat them, or how he could eat them, but he still does not want to try. In the end, he ends up trying them and liking them. I love the book’s rhymes and illustrations!

 

In the classroom, this book would be great to use for learning about rhyming, especially during Dr. Suess week

The Cat in the Hat Comes Back - Dr. Seuss

The Cat in the Hat returns to Sally and her brother’s house on a snowy day when they’re left at home alone again. The kids were instructed to clear some snow, but the cat appears again to cause trouble. The cat makes another mess, but is able to get it cleaned with the help of cats a-z, and clear the snow before the mother comes home. This is another fun read and is great to read after reading The Cat in the Hat.

 

 

In the classroom, this book can be read during Dr. Seuss week. It can also be used for comparing and contrasting with The Cat in the Hat.

The Cat in the Hat - Dr. Seuss

When Sally and her brother are left bored inside on a rainy day, the Cat in the Hat appears to cheer them up. The cat, however, only makes the house a disaster with the help of thing 1 and thing 2, and they ruin the mom’s dress. Minutes before the mom gets home, the cat is able to come in with a machine to clean his entire mess. After that, the cat disappears, leaving Sally and her brother just as bored as they started. This book is such a fun read; kids love it!! The cat and his companions can have anyone laughing.

 

 

This book is a good read during Dr. Seuss week in the classroom. I can also be used to compare and contrast with The Cat in the Hat Comes Back.
