Dr. Seuss books can be incorporated all school year long into numerous teaching themes. And typically there's at least a week set aside to focus solely on this beloved author and his works. I came up with a simple matching game that uses several characters from different books. It doesn't take long to make and will last for years. The game is a perfect fit in the literacy/library center, as well as the quiet, 1-on-1 center.
Total Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 1 game with 12 matches
- 2 pieces white card stock
- 24 pairs Dr. Seuss character stickers
- 1 permanent marker
- 12 pieces hard Velcro (around 1/2 inch each)
- 12 pieces soft Velcro
- laminator with sheet
- Optional: sandwich baggy
- With the paper turned horizontally, place 4 stickers on the left side in a column. Space them about half an inch apart.
- Leave about two inches of space and make a second column of four stickers. And then a third. Make sure all of the stickers are different. Laminate the page. Cut the hard Velcro pieces and place one to the right of each sticker. Add the name of your game with a marker.
- Place the other 12 stickers on the second sheet of paper. Cut them out and laminate them. Place a piece of soft Velcro on the back of each sticker that you cut out.
- Now you are ready to play the game! Match the sticker characters over and over again!
- One way to store the pieces is in a baggy. Put a piece of hard Velcro on the back of the game sheet and a soft piece on the baggy. Attach the baggy to the back of game sheet. Kids can easily take out the sticker cards to play and return them when they are done.
