Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Earlier this week (March 2, to be exact) it was the good “doc’s” birthday. His real name was Theodor Geisel and he is beloved to millions around the world.
His fun and funny, silly rhymes are famous. Like this, from The Cat in the Hat:
“I know it is wet
And the sun is not sunny.
But we can have
Lots of good fun that is funny!”
Exercise: Try your hand at fun and silly rhyme. It doesn’t even have to make sense! Write a few lines in “Seussical style.” Any subject! The weather, dogs talking to each other, make-believe animals with fantasy powers . . . or something silly that you’d like to have happen in your classroom or setting right now!
