Belated Seussy Project

Here is one of the Seussy projects my class did a few weeks ago! They were challenged with the task of creating the next Seuss super star (a little competition for The Cat in the Hat)! The only rule was that it had to rhyme. Here is what they came up with:

Possible extension activities:
  • Create a class book of the fun new characters.
  • Write and illustrate your character's first book!
  • Write a persuasive letter to Dr. Seuss describing why the new character is worthy of being published.
What other extension ideas do you have?? Post below!


  1. Love their ideas! I like your extension ideas, too. Very creative! How about writing a story where their character interacts with the Cat in the Hat? Or maybe they could compare and contrast their character with a Dr. Seuss character of their choice. They could also describe the character traits of their newly created character.
    I really enjoy your blog and all your ideas. I have a blog, too. Check it out, if you are interested.

  2. I love this idea! I can't wait to try it next year with my class. Your kids are so creative. I am your newest follower. Please come check out my blog when you get a chance.
