Mulberry Street Unit Study- My Street Journal

Are you joining me for the Mulberry Street Unit Study?  Did you take your kidlets to explore your street, as suggested in the Mulberry Street Unity Study- Paper Tube Binoculars post? Now you can help them create their own My Street Journal!

My Street Journal

It’s really simple.  Provide each child with 3-4 pieces of blank paper, crayons, markers, or colored pencils, and a copy of the book for inspiration. Fold the papers in half and staple for binding. On each page have your child draw a picture of themselves and what they saw while they were walking down your street. Of course title it “And to Think That I Saw It On My Street. This may be too much for one day for younger ones, so this activity can easily be spread over several days.

You can also collect objects on your walk, like pinecones, sprigs of pine needles, acorns, or leaves, to help them remember their exploration when it is time to draw in their My Street Journal.

Mulberry Street Unit Study – Paper Tube Binoculars

As I mentioned in my And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street post, this book is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE Dr. Seuss books!  It is so fun!  Help your kids see the fun in this book with these Mulberry Street Paper Tube Binoculars…

Paper Tube Binoculars

If you are going to check out what’s happening on your street you are probably going to need a good pair of binoculars so you don’t miss anything. Recycle a pair of paper tubes (i.e. toilet paper rolls) and paint them, add glitter, stickers, whatever appeals to you. Let them dry and glue or tape them together, hole punch on the two far sides and run a string or ribbon through to wear them.

Mulberry Street Binoculars

Once your Paper Tube Binoculars are dry and ready to go, spend some time exploring up and down your street (or all around your neighborhood) to see what things you can see!  explore your street

Did you have fun with that?  Encourage your children to explore – with adult supervision, of course—other areas, too.  Like the street at their best friends house or Grandma’s house.

And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street

Happy 110th birthday Dr. Seuss! In honor of Dr. Seuss’ Birthday, on March 2nd , I have put together a fun Mulberry Street Unit Study  full of activities, crafts, snacks, and a sensory bin to accompany one of my all time favorite Dr. Seuss books – And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street.  More on those in a minute…

First, about the book!

Mulberry Street Unit Study

And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street was the first book published by Dr. Seuss. It made it’s debut on the shelves in 1937, after it was originally rejected by 20 different publishers!  He titled it Mulberry Street after the street he grew up on. A silly, and fanciful story of a little boy named Marco as he tells of the amazing things he imagined he saw along the road.

And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street is perfect for a Unit Study of whimsical activities and some good old fashioned nonsense. There are also many opportunities for discussion on what it means to “Turn minnows into whales” and making up stories compared to telling fibs. But this book is a wonderful reminder to let your imagination take you to wonderful places.  Perhaps your little tall tale teller will turn into an imaginative author one day, lest you too often say, “Stop telling such outlandish tales. Stop turning minnows into whales.”

Math is Fun Printable Worksheet

One of the (many) thrills of homeschooling is that my kidlets love to learn.  Mister really enjoys math and often asks to work ahead or for extra worksheets to do.   He definitely gets his love for math from his engineer daddy, because while his Mommy can DO math, she doesn’t LOVE it.  I went all the way through calculus because I was told I would need it for nursing school… they lied… I wasn’t a happy camper when I realized they had lied.  Anyway, back to Mister and his love of math… after allowing him to work weeks ahead in his math curriculum and having printed a bajigazillijion (that is bajillion, gazillion, jillion, and zillion all added together, which is algebraic for A LOT) math worksheets for him, I’ve decided to laminate this Math is Fun Printable Worksheet for him, so he can use it over and over and over again!  It will save me time ***not to mention ink*** and will thrill him to no end.
