Creating the Perfect Dr. Seuss Bulletin Board
Creating the perfect Dr. Seuss bulletin board is a fun project to share with your students. Dr. Seuss is popular with children and adults of all ages. His fun stories inspire us and bring a sense of whimsy to life.
The board background
Choose March as your month for a Dr. Seuss theme to coincide with his birthday; children appreciate the connection and enjoy participating in Seuss-themed activities all month long. Attach the dust jackets of your favorite Dr. Seuss books to your bulletin board or find Dr. Seuss bulletin board paper rolls.
The particular pockets
Use staples or tacks to attach a pocket made from a file folder or other heavy paper next to each of the book covers. Children can use these pockets to store completed class activities that correlate to the particular book or to insert new ideas inspired by reading the book.
The personalized pictures
Have your students draw pictures of their favorite Dr. Seuss characters to decorate the bulletin board border. The personalized board allows them to showcase their artistic talents while adding to the overall theme.
The hefty highlight
Choose a book to highlight for each week of the month. For example, practice reading "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" during the first week. This is a great book to help children start a dialogue about life and identify the coming challenges. Have students write stories about the occupations they want to have and place them in the pockets on the bulletin board.
The books of Dr. Seuss are a fun tool to reel in students who are reluctant to improve their reading skills. The tales of his characters' adventures allow students to imagine a world different from their own and help them feel comfortable in the classroom environment.
