Cat in the Hat
Cat in the Hat | Seuss
157 posts | 246 read | 8 to read
Back in 1957, Theodor Geisel responded to an article in Life magazine that lamented the use of boring reading primers in schools. Using the pseudonym of "Dr. Seuss" (Seuss was Geisel's middle name) and only two hundred twenty-three words, Geisel created a replacement for those dull primers: "The Cat in the Hat." The instant success of the book prompted Geisel and his wife to found Beginner Books, and Geisel wrote many popular books in this series, including "Hop on Pop, " "Fox in Socks, " and "Green Eggs and Ham." Other favorite titles in this series are "Go, Dog, Go!" and "Are You My Mother?" by P. D. Eastman, "A Fly Went By, " by Mike McClintock, and "Put Me in the Zoo, " by Robert Lopshire. These affordable hardcover books combine large print, easy vocabulary, and large, bright illustrations in stories kids will want to read again and again. Grades 1 - Grades 2.

Remember the part in The Grinch movie where Max takes his paw and knocks off his red nose? You know, Jim Carey says, "BRILLIANT!!! You reject your own nose...". Anywho, that's almost exactly what happened about .2 seconds after this picture was taken. #milohatesprops #andpictures #andcats #andhats #andheadbands #andbluehair #andbows #andcurrentlyhismomma ??

#literaryluck #lessonsfromseuss Persistence! His children‘s books have been a part of our lives for generations,but I am still amazed when looking through vintage magazines and his recognizable style delights my eyes with his advertising work.He was already known as Dr.Suess when he did this one , but early ones are unsigned as he was just hired as a general illustrator.

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

While The Cat in the Hat does indeed take a solid ten minutes to read (which could be a long time to ask a young child to sit), it is full of fun rhymes and silly illustrations!

For Seuss Day yesterday, my class made their own hats to wear and also created handprint Thing One and Thing Twos.

This is a book that should be in any child‘s library.

For Day 2 (Lessons from Dr. Seuss) of #LiteraryLuck month: The Cat in the Hat is a much better book when read aloud if you give each character their own voice. My kids loved it when I read this book to them. I also could read this one without the risk of injury (there was the time my daughter was doing the motions as I read them in Horns to Toes and accidentally poked me in the eye. My eye hurt for more than 24 hours after that... so much pain!).

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Those are sweet memories ❤️❤️❤️ 3mo

#LiteraryLuck Day 2: Here are real #LessonsFromDrSeuss subjected to rigorous research and academic treatise and found to be guilty of racial transgressions, ostensibly. Here is the full link to the actual research article: https://sophia.stkate.edu/rdyl/vol1/iss2/4/ I haven‘t read it myself, but will most definitely include this in my list of reading materials for my course on multicultural children‘s literature and social and emotional learning.

My #lessonsfromDrSeuss is to like cats but don't trust a strange one that shows up at your house. My cats don't wear hats so they're good.

(I honestly don't love Dr. Seuss except for The Grinch. I don't remember reading these books as a kid but I do remember having to read them to kids when I babysat and they weren't my favorite.) #literaryluck

Lcsmcat The Cat in the Hat terrified me as a kid. I liked his other stuff though. 3mo

Day 2 - #lessonsfromdrsuess

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”

I meant what I said and I said what I meant.

#lae3414sp19 The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss is a fiction children‘s book that is wildly popular. This fun-loving book is about two kids doing chores and getting interrupted by a cat in a hat who gets them in to many sticky situations. This book helps to teach kids basic rhyming words while still keeping them entertained. The UDL I would use for this book would be 3.2, highlight patters, critical features, big ideas, and relationships.

Kcallihan Allowing the kids to see the rhyming patterns and identify the relationships between those words is a critical lesson to within this book. The ESOL strategy I would use would be #43, have students highlight or underline key words or important facts in written assignments. 4mo
Kcallihan If an ESOL student is able to highlight the words on their paper (from the book) that they believe rhyme it will not only allow the teacher to gauge their understanding but also prevent embarrassment for the student. A lesson plan for this book could be: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/ad/b6/fa/adb6faeded11d0475e26e658b34ce748.jpg 4mo
DrSpalding Rhyme is an important phonological skill and no one models rhyme better than Dr. Seuss! March 2 is his birthday and much of the nation will celebrate this with a Read Across America events! 4mo

The famous book, The Cat In The Hat, by Dr. Seuss is a book that almost every child has read. This F book for all ages and it takes you through Sally and her brother's rainy day adventure. The Cat In The Hat has surprises for the kids, even some special guests! They all make a huge mess and they see their mother coming home. The Cat In The Hat comes in with a cleaning surprise and tidies everything up before she gets inside. #lae3414sp19

taywise393 This book gives you a whirlwind of emotions and kids love it! For this book, I would have students read this as a CR because of the rhyming to it. For the lesson plan, I would introduce rhyming words. With this printable, students can group up and find out what words rhyme with the ones given. http://www.seussville.com/activities/SEUSS_RhymingFun_1.pdf The UDL's that would satisfy are 7.3 and 2.1. The ESOL strategies I would use are 17 and 20. 4mo
DrSpalding The Seuss website is awesome! Yes, choral reading would work well with the rhymes in the text. While it does rhyme, it‘s more so F than P due to the fanciful content. 4mo

#31BookPics Day 8: One of my #OldFavorite which I featured when we had a Throwback reading theme. From a psychoanalytic perspective, the cat is the raging id, while the Fish of course is the Superego that reins everything in with its moral injunctions, reminding the children that the cat should not be in their home in the first place. Now that I am an adult, I enjoyed the young children‘s sense of agency here. My Review https://wp.me/pDlzr-9c9

My son discovered the big wide world of Dr. Seuss. In a moment of parenting weakness I promised a fish like the one in The Cat in the Hat in exchange for good behavior. Today, my son cashed in that promise. Meet Po Po. Not sure what I got myself into. I‘m taking bets on how long I can keep this thing alive. Any fish advice, please pass my way. Kids should be supervised around these stretch bookmarks. #thecatinthehat #drseuss

This P book is a classic. I have always loved reading Dr. Seuss books! I plan to use Dr. Seuss in my classroom as much as possible, as there as so many resources out there. I would love to do a DR with this book, as I feel like it would be easily adapted to a staged version. This book would work best with primary grades. #ucflae3414sp18

These are the books that say Dr. Seuss to me. My mother thought they were silly and frivolous so was never allowed to read his books as a child. A shame, but she did give me my love of reading - just not these books! #MagicalMarch #DrSeuss

LazyDays @Andrew65 not all of Dr. Seuse books have a message, but a lot of them do if you read them with a open mind.💕 A lot of his are silly which is the best part of him as well. I LOVE Dr. Seuse he will always have a soft place in my heart ❤ I'm so happy you were able to read them anyways🌈 1y

I survived my first Dr. Seuss/Read Across America Day as an elementary school librarian! We had community and parent volunteers coming into the library to read to the kids all day long. It was a whole lot of fun, but I was sure exhausted by the time 3:15 rolled around.

ReadingEnvy One of our (academic) library staff used to be a public librarian and still keeps her Cat in the Hat outfit on standby. 🤭 1y
Chelsibno @ReadingEnvy I have mad love for librarians and teachers who have Cat in the Hat costumes or who collect all the character plushies. The kids love them so much! We have a teacher who has been teaching for 40 years, and she has a costume and all the plushies. #goals 1y
