In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, PBS KIDS is celebrated with their popular series THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT. Thanks to PBS Kids, I got to throw a birthday party for Dr. Seuss for my daughter’s Kindergarten class.
First, I read “Red Fish, Blue Fish” to the class.
Then we did a math activity with goldfish that I found it on Oopsey Daisy Blog.
The children loved counting out the goldfish and graphing the colors.
Then the children snacked on the Goldfish crackers and sipped on apple juice. Afterwards, we watched an episode of THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT Birthday special.
You can check out a clip here.
New half-hour episodes also premiered recently. The new episodes follow the Cat, Nick and Sally as they explore a variety of animal attributes: from the benefits of crickets’ chirps and birds’ feathers, to the mimic octopus’ remarkable ability to imitate other sea creatures. Viewers also learn how glass is made, how multi-legged creatures walk and how cotton is spun into fabric.
As part of the “Cat-ebration,” PBS KIDS has also launched a new, mobile-friendly THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! game: “Marbleous Marvel Coaster.” Available at pbskids.org/catinthehat, “Marbleous Marvel Coaster” allows kids to create their own Seussian rollercoasters using open-ended play and engineering skills.
Thank you to PBS Kids for sending supplies to throw a birthday party for Dr. Seuss and to my daughter’s teachers for letting me come in to their classroom. I am a PBS Kids VIP Ambassador. I am not compensated for this role.
