Do you have a Dr. Seuss fan at home?
If you’ve been around my blog for long, you know that we love Dr. Seuss crafts & activities!
Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now! By Dr. Seuss is perfect for beginning readers. The large print on each page, along with lots of repetition, makes this Seuss book a great fit for my kindergartner and first grader.
My kindergartner and first were so proud when they were able to read it on their own, that we just had to do a few Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now activities to go with the book.
This book is perfect for early readers. If you have older Seuss fans at home, check out our Dr. Seuss activities for older kids.
Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now activity
After reading through the book a few times (you just can’t read a Dr. Seuss book once!), we talked about all the ways you could move.
Then we tried out a few moves of our own!
We tried to go like crabs by doing the crab walk. We tried going like babies and crawling. We tried going fast; we tried going slow.
We had lots of fun coming up with crazy, silly ways we could go.
Then it was time for a Seuss craft!
To go with the picture on the book’s cover, we traced our hands while pointing. Then we wrote different ways to say “go” on our hands (“exit,” “leave,” “move”…). For extra fun we taped them to a few paint stirring sticks I had on hand to make our own signs.

This is one Dr. Seuss book we will have to be on the look out for at our next library visit. Can’t wait to read it! Thanks for sharing at our FB Share Day!
I’d never heard of it before, but I love that my early readers can read most of it!
