Dr. Seuss Day

Today is Dr. Seuss's birthday!

We had fun celebrating in my class all week long.

We read a different Dr. Seuss book each day and then did an activity to go along with it. 

Some of the things we did were so cute that I just had to share.

On Monday we read The Cat in the Hat and then the kids made their very own hats. They even cut them out all by themselves  :)  Once they were finished, we did a little parade around the school so the "big" kids could see. 

I wish I could show you these little darlings' faces. They are so sweet!

We made these Thing 1 & Thing 2 characters (also from The Cat in the Hat) out of the kids' hand prints.
I found this idea on Pinterest via this website. So stinkin cute!

On Tuesday we read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. 
I found these printables on this website and had the kids practice their counting with colored goldfish crackers. Then they got to eat them, yum!

Wednesday was Bartholomew and the Oobleck. That book is a long one. A little too long for my kiddos, so we kinda had to paraphrase. They loved it anyway and LOVED getting their hands dirty in the Oobleck.

This stuff is so cool; it acts like a liquid when it's being poured, but it feels solid when you touch it.
Here's the recipe: add 1 cup water to 1.5-2 cups corn starch and stir until smooth. You can also add a few drops of food coloring, but we opted not to. 

And of course, Green Eggs and Ham on Thursday. 
We decided to do deviled, green eggs. It was fun for the kids because they got to make their own. They each got two halves of an egg and then they mixed up the yolks with some mustard, mayo, and food coloring. For the ham, we put a few drops of green food coloring in a ziplock bag, added deli ham, and shook it up.

Not gonna lie, it looked so disgusting.

But I was so proud of my kids because they ALL tried it. And guess what?  They loved it!!! They seriously scarfed it down haha.

Such a fun week!

  1. Such fun projects! I ran by the library last night and they were having a Dr. Seuss storytime and all the kiddos were in Seuss Costumes!

  2. The link for the one fish, two fish is not working for me. Is there any way you could send me the working link?
    Thank you, Jennifer
