I've been busy getting my Grinch on! Creating, organizing, and updating all my Grinch stuff has been a JOY!! I'm sharing what I have so far in case you want a peek. If you are a parent or a student of mine, please log off right now! :) I want these activities to be a surprise for my kiddos!! Thanks!! If you are a teacher, or home schooler, take a peek at the samples of what is already a 33 page unit.******** It includes some author's message, character analysis, adjective study, a math tub game, a mystery picture, science, songs, poetry activities and more!! There will be more to come, but I've got to get my turkey on, too!! :) *********** Please see the message at the bottom of this post!!!

I am so sorry, but I have been made aware that it is against trademark law that I display anything with the Grinch on it, or even use the word Grinch. I plan on asking permission from Seuss Enterprises to celebrate this beloved character with school children using my unit. I strive to uphold the integrity that teachers should exhibit, and truly was unaware of the restraints against teaching through the use of this book. Dr. Seuss was an author who encouraged reading by writing books for kids to help them with their phonics, their sight words and their imaginations. I kind of feel like he wouldn't mind teachers using his characters and stories to promote a love for reading!!
Here's to the meaning of Christmas!!
Love that Dr. Seuss!
Have a good one!
Love this. Thanks for sharing your work.ReplyDelete

Thanks you so much! I love Dr. Seuss and was wanting to do the Grinch this Christmas. This is great. PS...can I say this without being weird? I love you!!! But really you are so generous and I totally look forward to getting the email from your blog!ReplyDelete
The clipart you are using is completely against trademark of Seuss Enterprises.ReplyDelete
I got the clip art from Creating in Carolina. I am not selling anything, I am celebrating this beloved story! Thanks for your comment!
It doesn't matter whether it's free or for sale! I promise that the Grinch image is a trademark and can only be used by Seuss Enterprises. But it's up to you! Good Luck!Delete
Thank you. I will contact whoever I need to! If I need to take it down and just use it for my own personal use, oh well. I just looooove celebrating this heart warming story and the message behind it!! Thank you, Dr. Seuss!Delete

What Happens in First Grade
I am excited to get your Unit. We are doing a Quarterly Behavior Party with the Grinch theme and I am working on finding some activities for that day. For some reason I am having a hard time finding the unit. Each time I click on your link it takes me to another page that gives me the meaning of Christmas. What am I doing wrong??? Thanks so much. I am a new follower of you.ReplyDelete

I am so appreciative of this book unit along with the If You Take a Mouse to the Movies. I am planning to use a book a week to practice comprehension skills and you have done the hard work for me! Thank you for sharing your gift of creativity and for your generosity! I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas!!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you thank you this is absolute fabulous! My first graders are sooo excited about grinch day and you just made it a lot better! Thanks for helping teachers - you are helping a lot more children than just yours.ReplyDelete
Did you know that the word "Grinch" is trademarked? Free or paid -this product violates trademark laws. Here is a blog post I did about this subject: http://effectiveteachingarticles.blogspot.com/2012/12/warning-copyrights-trademarks.htmlReplyDelete
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I once got my hand slapped by Seuss Enterprises with a cease and desist. I think it's important for teachers to know what we can and can't do when it comes to copyright and trademarks.
Lisa, Thank you so much for bringing that to my attention. I strive to hold myself to the integrity that we as teachers should. I will take this unit off my blog until I get permission from Seuss Enterprises, if that is even possible. I read your post and you shed light on a subject that little bloggers like me needed to see! Thank you!!Delete
Where can I download this?ReplyDelete
Here you go! https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0bn51-8JcKsMVhpaFJpMHBLUkk/edit
We have been working our way through your Grinch unit this week and my kids are LOVING it!! Thank you so much!!ReplyDelete
I was able to use your unit before you had to remove it (that's a shame). I know my students will enjoy the great activities you shared (and for free!). Thanks so much for your hard work!ReplyDelete
I was unable to view your unit before you had to take it down. I would LOVE hear what you did with your kids- I am so sorry that you had to take it down (I would hope that we are all on the same page-helping kids learn to read and LOVE learning). You are truly amazing keep doing what you are doing-Thank you for all that you do- you know what is BEST for kids!!!
Can I please get a copy of this unit. It looks great.ReplyDelete
