Celebrating Dr. Seuss Week in Speech Therapy

Monday, February 22, 2016

I am getting excited to celebrate Dr. Seuss week in my speech therapy room. Read Across America Day is Wednesday, March 2.

Here are a few fun ways you can incorporate some Seuss fun too...
I have SO MANY great ideas on my Seuss! Pinterest board here.

I will be making 2 snacks for my therapy room this week:
One is a “Wacky Wednesday” snack. It is super easy!

It’s a mix of pretzels, M&Ms, animal crackers, marshmallows, peanuts, and raisins. Really, you can do any combination of small dry items. Be careful about the peanuts! I used animal crackers to tie in the “Put Me In The Zoo” and “If I Ran the Zoo” books.
I simply put them in a snack size zipper bag, printed off the words: “Wacky Wednesday Snack” in funky font and fun colors and taped it to the front! Super quick and easy!

I also love making this sweet treat “Dr. Seuss Hats.”

How to make them:
Split an Oreo in half, then cut in half a large marshmallow and cut a strawberry into thirds (I discard the strawberry tip). Stack them using the Oreo cookie as the base, then strawberry, then marshmallow layered twice. Use a toothpick to keep straight. It’s cute when they are a little topsy-turvy.

Here is a FREEBIE for you to download and use! "My Bag of Fish Book"

It goes along with the book, “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.”
You make a little booklet. Use this for following directions, position words, and many articulation goals such as /sh/, /f/.
It might be fun to incorporate the colored Goldfish as a snack!

I’d love to hear how you are celebrating Dr. Seuss week!
Next week I am posting a cute spring game for you to play- come back soon.

Remember, “You’re off to great places, today is your day. Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!” Dr. Seuss


  1. Super cute ideas! The Dr. Seuss hats made me hungry! I just may be using these ideas in therapy that week! Thanks!

  2. yay! for Dr. Seuss hats! These look delicious!

  3. What an adorable little book. Perfect for teaching color words as well as final "sh" because it repeats "fish". My kids will love this activity, thank you!
