It been a wild week of rhyming, counting, and reading our favorite Dr. Seuss stories! We started off with the Cat in The Hat. It was fun! We made Thing 1 and Thing 2 "hair by cutting paper strips and gluing them to a sentence strip. I made them each a Thing 1 or Thing 2 shirt signs and took great "photo booth style" pics for the kids to share with their families. We are making frames and giving them to our moms and dads at the end of the week. Day 2 we read the ever popular Green Eggs and Ham! It was so much fun. We made platters like this one below. This was a cutting activity. We are working on cutting pre-drawn shapes to get ready for the cutting and gluing activity worksheets our 5's will have to do once they are in kindergarten. These too provided us with a photo opportunity that we are going to surprise our parents with on Friday.
We added fun foam eggs and hams for our water table. This was a hit with many kids. Our ham's were so good looking 2 of them had bite marks in them after the first day!
We needed many more frying pans and after taking the photo here I finally found them!
Cooking came next and the drama that came with green scrambled eggs could have been worthy of an Academy Award! Many of them were convinced they could not eat green eggs! The faces were hilarious! All liked them except one! And they loved the heated up sliced ham!
The Lorax was next! This story is so cute and I love reading it! My students were very focused on listening and really got into it. Once done we all had a great conversation about trees and where things come from. Many of my students continued to comment through the end of the day about where animals would go if we bought more blocks for our classroom! It was too funny!
These turned out great, but the conversation was even better! Some drew animals in their pictures and were talking about how happy they will be by the trees they made.
The rest of the week includes reading more fun Dr. Seuss and making some adorable FOX IN SOCKS! I will post those soon!
What are you doing to celebrating Dr. Seuss?
