Dr. Seuss books and activities are wonderful any time of the year, but since his birthday is coming up on March 2nd, I want to share some preschool math activities inspired by his books. I just love mixing math and literature!!
Studies show that "cross-curriculum" teaching, or using two subjects like math and reading within a common theme (like a Dr. Seuss book) tend to improve learning and increase children's abilities to apply new skills!
