Oh the Places You'll Go![OH THE PLACES YOULL GO D][Hardcover] - DrSeuss

GRADES PREK–K,  1–2 and Lexile Level 600L


I LOVE THIS BOOK!! This is one of my favorites. Its about a little one that had many different paths to go down and has to choose. I would read this to my class then have them make up to different paths. A good path and a bad path and then ask them which one  they would want to travel.

The Cat in the Hat - Dr. Seuss

One wet, rainy day while mother is out, a boy and a girl sit dejectedly in their chairs, watching the rain beat against the window. They're bored. Suddenly, in bursts a large cat in a tall striped hat, ready to play — and not just ordinary games, oh no! This cat likes to create mischief and mayhem, and to aid him, he brings Thing One and Thing Two. These two small fuzzy blue imps race around the house, wreaking havoc. Who's going to clean up this mess? This classic Dr.Seuss book is a wonderful read for kids of all ages, but I would use it in my classroom for grades K-2nd. This book would be great to read for Dr.Seuss week as it has so many great activities that you could do as a class to go along with it. This classic book was also made into a movie which would be good for children to watch after reading the book in order to compare and contrast. It could also be used in small reading groups to help students with Phonemic Awareness.

Oh, The Places You'll Go
Oh, the Places You'll Go! - Dr. Seuss

This popular Dr. Seuss book is inspiring for even adults. This book emphasizes the saying "when one door closes, another one opens." There are many opportunities in life, you just have to go out and get them. As with any Dr. Seuss book, there is humor and wit in the wring of this book. I would say the intended audience for this book is 2nd to 3rd grade, but it is fitting for anyone at any age. An activity I would do with this book would to have students share with the class what they want to be when they grow up. The can dress up as this person whether it be a rockstar, a doctor, or to be just like their mom or dad! This gets students thinking about the future and gets them motivated to look beyond school life and set goals to get to the place they want to go!

Oh, the Places You'll Go! - Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss’s wonderfully wise Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is the perfect send-off for grads—from nursery school, high school, college, and beyond! From soaring to high heights and seeing great sights to being left in a Lurch on a prickle-ly perch, Dr. Seuss addresses life’s ups and downs with his trademark humorous verse and illustrations, while encouraging readers to find the success that lies within. In a starred review, Booklist notes, “Seuss’s message is simple but never sappy: life may be a ‘Great Balancing Act,’ but through it all ‘There’s fun to be done.’” I have been read this book by so many teachers in so many classes over the years and I still love it just as much easy time. Life really is just one big balancing act that takes you to so many different places just as Dr. Seuss states so simply in the book. I would use this book in any grade level I was teaching to remind my students that they do not have to fear change. It is a good thing to embark on a new journey and start a new phase in life because there really is no limit inn the places you can go. I fully believe all students no matter the background need to be reminded that they are smart and they are capable of great things. When teachers believe in there students they create students that believe in themselves. I think this would be a wonderful book to read to your class on the first day of school to calm nerves and remind each student that they are all special and have a future far brighter than they could ever imagine.
