In Honor of Dr. Seuss: ScrapBook Reports

Dr. Seuss ScrapBook Reports
During the month of March, I've had my students read lots of Dr. Seuss' books.  

Sample Letter to the Parents:
This month’s book project, your child will read a book written by Dr. Seuss and create 2 scrapbook pages based on the book.  How???  After they read their Seuss book, they must write a letter to Dr. Seuss. In this letter they will tell him the name of the book they read, tell him about their favorite character and why they like the character.  Also, describe their favorite part of the book.  Next, on a separate sheet your child must draw a picture of their favorite character or their favorite scene in the book.  Once they are done, they place their letter on one scrapbook page and decorate it based on the book.  And, on the other scrapbook page they place their picture and decorate it, too. 
Materials Needed for Project:
1. Dr. Seuss book to read (Once your child decides which book they want to do their book project, please send me the letter below no later than March 8th.)  The teacher must approve the book so that we don’t have students reading the same book. 
2. (2) 12x12 Scrapbook pages
3. Paper to write your letter and Paper for your drawing (NO PHOTOCOPIES OF THE BOOKS- TRACING IS ALLOWED!)
4. Crayons, colored pencils or markers
5. Materials for decorating the scrapbook pages.
6. And most importantly, IMAGINATION AND CREATIVITY!!
You may visit my website ( to see previous students’ ScrapBook Reports for ideas.  As you will see some students did not follow the rules, so please make sure you understand what is expected.  The work (the letter and the drawing) must be your child’s work.  Parents are ALLOWED to help with the decorating of the scrapbook pages.  Parents are EXPECTED to help with spelling and grammar.  If you have any questions, please email me.  I am sending this letter home now, so that you can help your child prepare for their project.  They have 4 weeks to work on the project and to turn it in before the end of the 3rd Quarter (March 25th).
