Go, Dog. Go!

by Childsplay

Grades PK-2

The adventures of P.D. Eastman’s book spring to life in a frolicking musical dog party. This beloved preschool favorite has gone to the dogs—with cars, hats, audience participation, and even a wild game of ball, and this hilarious visual spectacle covers important lessons about life between innings. Join us for a performance full of surprises, clowning, singing, barking, and, of course, six lovable dogs!

Common Core Content Standards Easily Applied in Your Classroom

  • K.RL.2: With prompting and support, retell familiar stories, including key details.
  • 1.RL.9: Compare and contrast the adventures and experiences of characters in stories.
  • 2.RL.4: Describe how words and phrases (e.g., regular beats, alliteration, rhymes, repeated lines) supply rhythm and meaning in a story, poem, or song.

Lesson Plan Idea

Use a story board to retell Go, Dog. Go! using student drawings instead of words.
