Cat in the Hat Fun Share: I wanted to think of something different to do, as a math center, for Dr. Seuss Week, so I frogged around with a variety of things a child could create with the stripes on a Cat in the Hat hat. The result is the page packet: Seuss Hat Patterning I think your students will enjoy these hands-on activities and game.
They are an easy and fun way to whole-group assess patterning. Make a class set of the white-hat template, and cut a variety of colored construction paper strips. Children choose 2 colors. Teacher calls out a pattern and students arrange their stripes to show it.
You can see at a glance who needs help.
If you don't want to save the game for next year, when you have completed your assessment, have students glue their stripes to their hat showing their favorite pattern. There are also several art "craftivities" as well, including my Y5's favorite, which was designing their own Seuss hat.
For little ones, use the pattern that has stripes on it, so that they can simply color it differently than the real cat's hat. For some great fine motor practice, instead of coloring their hat, have children rip and tear a colored strip of construction paper and then glue the pieces to their hat.
Reinforce an ABAB pattern by having them choose only one color. Use the blank template for older students and encourage them to design a hat with something other than stripes. Seuss Hat Patterning Packet. Feel free to PIN away. Do you have a Dr. Seuss activity you could share with us?
