Dr. Seuss is one of my favorite children’s authors. As a child, two of my favorite books were Green Eggs and Ham and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. Of course, there is also The Cat In the Hat, Horton Hears a Who, The Lorax, and Oh, The Places You’ll Go. These books are loads of fun, and his books are readily available at your local library, bookstore, and Amazon.
One reason that younger kids love these books is because of Dr. Seuss’ rhyming scheme, the fantastic illustrations, and the silly words and names of his fanciful creatures. When my children were born, I made sure to buy as many Dr. Seuss books as I could, and I am now passing them on to my oldest son for his daughter. I truly enjoyed sitting with my children reading the Dr. Seuss books with them. As my children got older, after we would read a Dr. Seuss book, I would give them a writing prompt to use to write their own story.
Dr. Seuss’s birthday is March 2nd and it’s always enjoyable to celebrate. Every year I schedule a birthday party for him in my classroom. This year I am dressing up as the Cat in the Hat to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday. There are so many fun ideas on Pinterest that you could actually make a whole week of Dr. Seuss’ celebration.
In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, I created this pack of super fun Dr. Seuss writing prompts that will get any reluctant writer into the writing mode. The key is to get those reluctant writers to share their ideas in a funny manner. Dr. Seuss is everyone’s favorite, right? This tactic especially worked for my children who thought that writing was just plain torture.
I created 6 different writing prompts with 2 different levels depending on how large your child writes. Each writing prompt is either single-spaced or with dotted lines and consists of full pages so your child has plenty of space to write. As added fun, you can also have your child draw sketches or a cartoon of what they wrote about.
