20 Math Activities Inspired by Dr. Seuss

I love all of the Dr. Seuss inspired activities that are being shared in celebration of Read Across America Day {March 1st} and Dr. Seuss’ birthday {March 2nd}. Dr. Seuss is also February’s author of the month for the Virtual Book Club for Kids. I’ve collected 20 math activities that go along with Dr. Seuss books. Practice number recognition, counting, graphing, pattern making, addition, and more. There’s also lots of free printables, so be sure to check them out.
