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 Below you will find an example of these 4 Grinch shaped writing templates.

blue bullet point For this second activity, students draw inside the Grinch's head the facial expression that he would have at the beginning of the book and the end of the book. In the speech bubble, they write something that the Grinch would say at the beginning and the end of the 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.

The remaining questions are set up in the same way, two rhyming sentences from the story, with one of the rhyming words as the answer that students write in the crossword puzzle.
