We read The Lorax today and the kids LOVED it. I started off by introducing the book and a little bit about Dr. Seuss. This is a book that will need a little bit of explaining while you are reading it. It's a difficult book with lots of tricky words for 1st graders, but with some discussion, they really do get it and this book can lead to wonderful conversation. After reading, we filled out this chart together. Stories Maps, Classroom, Reading, The Lorax, Truffula Trees, Earth Day, Dr. Seuss, First Grade, Anchors Charts
