Hello Parents and Kids,
I’ve come up with a new assignment for my students and I have a feeling that you will like it. For this little project you will be practicing your listening skills! But you’ll also get to write and draw too.
I’ve used the help of readlearngrow14 and her video read aloud of the the book, “The Cat in the Hat” as well as the help of Art for Kids Hub and his video on how to draw the Cat in the Hat. Don’t worry, he is a fantastic artist and he will give you step by step instructions so that your cat will come out looking great.
The last part of our project involves a little writing to accompany your drawing. I can’t wait to see my students’ results and I’m sure that yours will be great too!
Have fun and remember, just speak!
1. First you will listen to the story, “The Cat in the Hat” which will be read to you by learngrow14.
2. After listening to the story you will listen to it a second time, but this time you will pay close attention to the rhyming words (cat and hat, hit and sit, two and do…) and to the phrases that get repeated. For example, “He should not be…”, “Look at me…”, “I can hold…” etc.
3. Once you are done with the read aloud you get to visit Art for Kids Hub. This is the part where you will be needing a few material like paper and markers.
Remember, if you are using Sharpies, you should protect your table top or you could end up leaving some marks..
4. After you are done coloring in your cat, it is time to go back to the audio reading of “The Cat in the Hat”. Now you are going to have to decide if you want to do Part A or Part B:
