I didn’t forget…his birthday is almost here. Most people who work in an Elementary school know exactly who I am talking about. THE Doctor. The ultimate genius in early learning, phonemic awareness and word family skills. Yes, the inspiration for celebrations like Read Across America and Tasting Parties featuring green eggs and other foods…You guessed it, Theodor Seuss Geisel; A.K.A., Dr. Seuss.
I received a few messages asking me if I have any Bingo Boards with the Dr. Seuss theme. Of course!! Every SLP could have their own as well, with the fabulous creation tool (Boardmaker) and the ever useful “shuffle button.” If you have ever created even one Bingo board in Boardmaker, you just need to edit the pictures to reflect your new theme; save as; highlight the buttons; shuffle; save as (repeat 4 more times to make a set.) That’s it…seriously SO easy and the creations can be used to target a multitude of skills. I will say that I am using Bingo boards and similar activities less often now, with my focus on incorporating interactive technology and multi-media resources into my regular therapy. But I firmly believe that every holiday deserves a good Bingo Board….and so, in honor of the Doc himself, here you go…
My Birthday Bingo Board Based on Books Poem:
So, without further debate or delay,
I bring you this resource, a game to play.
Just click and download each Bingo file
For you and your kids to enjoy awhile.
The pics are great; the pics are grand
And help kids express and understand
So play; discuss, with smiles and looks
A birthday game that’s based on books.
This game is more than Mother Goose…
We are talking Dr. Seuss!!
