We had a GREAT time with it last year! You can read all about it HERE. This year one of my teammates had a great idea, A HAT PARADE! Did you know that Dr. Seuss collected hats? His hat collection served as as source of inspiration for his writing. Really! Check this out! A hat parade was the perfect way to review adjectives and it also fit into our Dr. Seuss Week! Simply, send a note to your parents asking them to help their child to create or decorate a hat they already own and have their child wear it to school one day; maybe a Friday! ; ) Or, You could even send a sentence strip home and challenge your students to create a hat with that. Here are a few hats that my students wore:
Roll out some red butcher paper and you are ready for a hat parade! Or if your school has a stage, use that! I created these printables to go with this activity.
On the front page, students described and drew their own hat. On the back students, wrote adjectives using their friend's hats.
