Every year we have fun celebrating the zany books of one of our favorite authors, Dr. Seuss. It’s perfect to do at the start of the school year, or in March, to celebrate his birthday.
Over the years we have done lots of fun activities for Dr. Seuss, including our very own Wacky Wednesday Activities. (Ice cream for breakfast? Yes, please!)
This year we are adding to the festivities with this simple silly sentences printable for Wacky Wednesday.
If you are trying to teach your child to add more details to their writing, and expand those sentences, then this wacky sentences printable is perfect!
No need to wait for March and Dr. Seuss activities, either.
While we are using it for Dr. Seuss Week, the printable is actually made to use completely on its own.

Wacky Wednesday Activity
- Wacky Sentences Printable (Get it free, below.)
- 1 Game Die
This sentence writing activity is super easy.
Have your child roll the game die to determine what word they will use in their sentence.
They will roll the die 5 times for each sentence.
The first roll will be for an adjective. They will also roll for a noun, verb, adverb, and prepositional phrase.
There is a second page to the printable that is perfect for writing down the wacky sentences your child creates.
As they roll for each sentence part, your child will begin to recognize words that are adjectives, nouns, verbs, adverbs, and prepositional phrases.
Once they have created several sentences, there is a space to draw their very favorite.
Will a fuzzy dragon burp gracefully under the stairs? Or hungry mice jump slowly over the car?
No matter what they roll, this printable silly sentence activity will have them laughing!
This is one of our favorite Dr. Seuss Inspired Activities for Older Kids. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
This Wacky Wednesday activity is perfect for teaching kids to expand sentences and learn about parts of speech, too.
