Dr. Seuss Style Writing about Dr. Seuss

In Ms. Jennifer’s lesson today, we developed our skimming and scanning skills to find out specific information about Dr. Seuss. We then worked hard to create a piece of writing to share the information in the style of Dr. Seuss!

We have published our writing as comments. Have read and let us know what you think.

    This is our work::

    Dr. Ted Seuss made a big shift in thinking, Rhyme he used to make a real linking. For the first time he made our reading fun, what stun he made for everyone. He wrote our first short book with a true message deep, his words certainly made our learning leap.

    The question is: Did Dr. Seuss make a shift in thinking?

      “what stun he made for everyone” could be improved, it doesn’t really make sense.

      Loving it! Joy is a good word choice.

    Doctor Seuss loved to rhyme,
    He used his time to joke and chime.
    A cartoonist in his early career,
    Until the war, when he shed a tear.
    He then became a children’s writer,
    His books became much, much brighter.
    But then in 1991,
    He left us, sadly, he was done.

      I love this one. However, I don’t like this line: “His books became much, much brighter” because the rhythm is not as good as the other lines. Can you fix it? Yes you can!

      • Odette, Sam, Gabi, Paula
        January 19, 2011 at 11:26 am

        Here is our fixed version:

        Doctor Seuss loved to rhyme,
        He used his time to joke and chime.
        A cartoonist in his early career,
        Until the war, when he shed a tear.
        He then became a children’s writer,
        His books became so much brighter.
        But then in 1991,
        He left us, sadly, he was done.

      A particular powerful and clever piece in the final 2 lines…
      “His future now looked so much brighter?” be original…

    This is our work.

    Cartoonist during early years drawing pictures to overcome fears Editor in chief he soon became gaining popularity and life long fame. While traveling on a luxury boat the rhythm of the engine he wrote and to think I saw it on mullberry street it became first of the Dr.Seuss fleet.

      Where is the punctuation?

      January 19, 2011 at 5:39 pm

      What about a new line for each phrase?

    Blessed with his stress
    I must confess,
    Dr. Seuss wore a dress.
    Zibazi-Zooo red, yellow, blue
    Dr. Seuss was painting for
    Santiago’s zoo.
    The name of the peice,
    “Lion Wading Pool”
    Which is incredibly cool!
    Done his buns, looked to the sun, yelled “Wow, that was fun!”

    • Mr. Sam
      January 19, 2011 at 11:20 am

      I don’t know what “done his buns” means. Can you change it to something people will understand? Yes, you can.

    This is our work and we wrote about Dr Seuss’s name:

    Is his name Dr.Seuss?
    No but maybe he liked juice.
    Geisel was the name of his mom,
    Who liked to eat green bubblegum.
    His name was very odd,
    It made people look and nod.
    I’ll tell you his real name,
    It’s Theadore Ted Seuss Geisel, yeah he claimed.

    Thank you for reading and please give us feedback. 🙂

      I like this piece of writing or a poetry because it has a lovely rhythm. I hope you guys make more of those poetries. (by Jin)

        Thanks Jin. If you don’t understand any parts of this writing, feel free to tell us. Whenever I’m free I’ll try to right more and maybe ask some people to join.

          It was by Am by the way sorry not to edit the name!

    • Mr. Sam
      January 19, 2011 at 11:27 am

      I don’t really get the “yeah he claimed” bit.

      • Am
        January 19, 2011 at 11:29 am

        Well, we were quite out of ideas but we will edit it now and re-publish and hope it’s better. We were trying to reffer to like he claimed it was his name and it was real name even though it doesnt really make much sense…

        • Am, Jon, Pimboon, Anirudh
          January 19, 2011 at 11:31 am

          Sorry not exactly now but a bit later as soon as possible!

      January 19, 2011 at 5:43 pm

      So willing for feedback! Just check from “His name was…” I think you need a few more syllables in phrases to maintain rh…rhythm. Read it aloud to check.

    This is our edited work

    Cartoonist during early years. Drawing pictures to overcome fears Editor in chief he soon became. Gaining popularity and life long fame. While traveling on a luxury boat. The rhythm of the engine he wrote and to think I saw it on mullberry street it became first of the Dr.Seuss fleet.

    This is our third work.

    Cartoonist during early years.
    Drawing pictures to overcome fears Editor in chief he soon became.
    Gaining popularity and life long fame.
    While traveling on a luxury boat.
    The rhythm of the engine he wrote

    it became first of the Dr.Seuss fleet.

    • Mr. Sam
      January 19, 2011 at 11:30 am

      The name of the book should be in capital letters. Also, you need to improve “The rhythm of the engine he wrote” to explain it more clearly, maybe using words like “to” or “with”.

    • Jennifer
      January 19, 2011 at 5:47 pm

      Great to see you editing your work. I really like the particular details you included in this piece. Fascinating about the inspiration of the boat engine…

    • Mr. Sam
      January 19, 2011 at 11:25 am

      Sorry, “finished his buns” also makes no sense. Buns are not even slightly relevant!

      • Yeachan, Saeyeon and Michael
        January 19, 2011 at 11:27 am

        we agree with you Mr. Sam.

        • Jennifer

          Me too. Rework that last line…be original!

    Umm, sorry if I’m not supposed to be here, but Ms. A posted us a link and we have to put in our poem.

    Dr. Suess won many awards,
    So happy he was, he thanked the lord!
    three caldeccott medals,
    A Pulitzer prize,
    A Laura Ingalls,
    Much to his Surprise.
    He could not win, was his fear.
    But when he did, out flowed joyous tears.
    Much more he won.
    Who could beat him?
    None.

    • Juli Lin
      January 25, 2011 at 8:59 pm

      You meant 50 words, right? Because 51 is 1 too many!

    Dr. Seuss Caused A Shift In Thinking,
    With Rhyme That’s Done With Rethinking.
    That’s How He Made Us Read,
    And Made Our Imagination Leap!
    Dr. Seuss Really Made Us Learn,
    So We Can Become Smart And Take A Turn.
    He Really Blew Up Our Thoughts,
    He helped Untie Our Knots!

    He started as a writer,
    Oh how talented he was,
    He wrote “It came from Mulberry Street”,
    The engines it did buzz!
    He came home he ate lots of jam,
    When he thought a book, “green eggs and ham!”
    He loved books they gave,
    He took them to the grave

    We Finished ours on the first day but didn’t post it. Here we go, We did”what was Dr. Seuss’s favorite work” or something similar.

    Dr. Seuss loved to read and look,
    But his favorite work was not a book,
    It was In fact a work of art,
    Displayed at San Diego Park,
    It was a lion wading pool,
    Which kept the lions cool,
    Even when it was sunny,
    He donated it for no money.

    One day on a luxury cruise
    Dr. Suess had some news!
    Enjoying lots of things to write Ted’s good wife had a bright light!
    Requesting if he decided to write, Dr. Suess replied
    “What a light!
    I’ll do it right
    Get out of my way
    it’s now time to write!

    Theodor Seuss Giesel he was
    Of stories he was boss
    Started writing on a boat
    Lucky he was not alone
    His friend was saying loudly
    To write a story proudly
    Never to give up writing
    Everyday wrote up a sighting
    Then one day he went,
    And put down his pen.

    • Juli Lin
      February 1, 2011 at 6:58 pm

      Sorry, the second line is supposed to be ‘Of stories, he was boss’ For the rhythm after ‘Of stories,’ there’s a pause. Sorry ;P
