Title of Bulletin Board: Literacy in PE

Category: Integration

Suggested Grade Level: k-5

Materials: Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss


In an effort to incorporate literacy into my classroom, I had the idea to get the help of Dr. Seuss. During the week of Dr. Seuss' birthday, I deconstructed his famous book, Hop on Pop. Within the pages of the book, I took the words and made them into actions. For example, "See the Bee" was a station where the children took yellow bean bags and tossed them at bee posters attached to the wall. "Hop on Pop" was a station utilizing hippity hop balls and children hopped along a train of pop pictures attached to the gymnasium floor. Each station mimicked different actions in the book. The lesson was a huge success and the goal of incorporating literacy into this lesson was achieved.
