Dr. Seuss is a beloved author whose imaginative stories have captured the hearts of both children and adults for generations. His classic books such as “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham” continue to inspire and entertain readers of all ages. I love to use these Dr. Seuss themed songs in my classroom! In this post, I will share with you some of my favorite songs based on Dr. Seuss books that are sure to delight and entertain everyone. So put on your red-and-white striped hat and get ready to sing along! If you want to purchase any of the books, I have included a link to them.
Wocket in My Pocket
One of my favorite ways to use this song is to have the students substitute the things in the book for the underlined words. For example – “there’s a ghar in my car “or a “tamera in my camera”
Away we go, rig a jig and away we go, Heigh, ho, heigh, ho, heigh, ho
Continue reading the book and substituting the things Marco sees for the underlined words.
The Cat in the Hat
If I Ran the Zoo
Down in the zoo with the beat in your feet
Tell me the animal that you’d like to meet
A lion, a lion, she wants to meet a lion
I love to use this song to explore steady beat. You could ask different students where to keep the beat and substitute the word “feet.”
