blue bullet point The main project for this book is a set of writing responses based on the book. Before students write on their final draft Grinch head templates, they complete their writing on their first drafts.

blue bullet point The writing responses for this project include:

  • Why do you think the Grinch hated Christmas so much?
  • Why do you think the Whos still celebrated their Christmas after the Grinch had stolen their presents and food?
  • Why do you think the Grinch changed his mind and brought the food and toys back to Who-ville?
  • What message is Dr. Seuss trying to teach in this story?
  • Write a letter to the Grinch trying to convince him to change his mind about Christmas and why he shouldn't steal the presents and the food from the people of Who-ville.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the first draft writing worksheets for this project.

blue bullet point The final draft templates for this project are in the shape of the Grinch's head and he is wearing a Santa hat. There are 4 templates for students to cut out along the thick black lines.

blue bullet point The first page is the title page, and the three remaining pages are in the shape of the Grinch's head and contain the writing responses that the students wrote about in their first drafts. The line space on the first draft and final draft templates match each other.

blue bullet point When students have completed writing, coloring, and cutting out their templates, they staple the heads together at the top, so that they have a Grinch shaped flip book.

blue bullet point I would encourage my students to try and write a pair of rhyming sentences inside each of the speech bubbles and to try and use Dr. Seuss' style of writing using rhyming words inside the speech bubbles.

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

From: California, U.S.A.

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

Name: Mary (Grade 4)
From: New York, U.S.A.

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!

Name: Margaret (Grade 5)
