Found this App last year and it was such a hit!
It is a MUST HAVE again this year!



























I am overwhelmed by the unlimited amount of online resources for cute Dr. Seuss ideas and activities, but this SITE has everything needed in one place to honor Dr. Seuss! 

Digital Dr. Seuss Books are FUN to read! We have the Cat in the Hat and The Cat in the Hat Comes Back on an iPad to project on our Apple TV to read whole group. We also have both titles on our iPad minis to read in small groups. 

This book is available for download on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iBooks and on your computer with iTunes. Books must be read on an iOS device.

iPod Fun
Here are the Apps purchased for our class iPod Touches. 
Truffula Shuffula is the official game for the movie “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax”!

In the game, you’ll help The Lorax create colorful clusters of 3 or more matching objects. The more clusters you create, the more points you earn!



The Cat in the Hat is back…with an app made to play along with 32 game tiles in the Dr. Seuss Fun Machine! Jump into the world of Dr. Seuss by matching, pairing, and solving in these madcap mixes of family fun!

Three great games in one app:

1. MATCHING: Challenge your memory to find tiles that match shape, color, or character.
2. SLAP DOWN: Be the first to slap down your tile when it matches what’s on the screen.
3. GUESS-A-ROO: Use your super sleuth Seuss skills to guess the Secret Tile from the clues on screen. Collect the most tiles to win!


Speak for the trees, for they have no tongues, with the Official Lorax App! Hold the phone up to your mouth, and talk. The Lorax’s mouth and moustache will move along with your voice.



Help the Lorax regrow the world's Truffula tree forests! Design your own trees and flowers, see them grow right before your eyes, and share beautiful postcards you've created with friends & family.
Since I am the World's Worst Person in a KITCHEN- my Sister in Law is going to make my class some cupcakes! 
Can't wait for the yummy treat!
How did I ever live without PINTEREST?
Love these cupcake ideas.



Happy B-Day Dr. Seuss!

  1. Thanks for sharing these wonderful resources! I've been brainstorming ideas for my 4th graders. I love the Dr. Seuss app. I think I'm going to have my students read one of his books do a book review and use the app to take their picture and post to their blog. We also are going to read whole class Who was Dr. Seuss?

    Thanks for inspiring my ideas!

      I would like my students to start blogging - how do you do it? Do they have their own account. I purchased a kid blog app- but haven't played around yet. WOuld love some blogging advice for 2nd graders!
