Dr. Seuss Smarties Card for students

I've loved Dr. Seuss since childhood, and carried this obsession into teaching and mothering.  I read Dr. Seuss books to my students on the first day of school, last day of school, and several days in between.  His books are read weekly in my house.  My first two kids had Dr. Seuss themed nurseries:  "Red Fish Blue Fish" and "Oh, The Places You'll Go".  Like it, love it!

Dr. Seuss quotes work for transitions and celebrations:  graduations, first day of school, job transitions, etc...  I'm so excited to give my boys this Dr. Seuss inspired "Be Smart" card on the first day of school.  I used to give my students Smarties to celebrate goals, and now use them with my kids.










Want to use Smarties to reward smart choices?

There is no one alive who is Youer than You."
