Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

We had such a Seuss-tacular week! The kids fell totally in love with Dr. Seuss...they were just mesmerized by his stories! Here are some of the fun activities we did for Dr. Seuss week :)

Mulberry Monday
We read "And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street." Then we used our imaginations to create our own version of the book, entitled "And to Think That I Saw It on Hina Avenue" (the name of our school's street).

Top Hat Tuesday
We read "Cat in the Hat" and created these cute paper plate Cat in the Hats for a bulletin board display. Then we made our very own hats to wear! Both crafts used this Hat Template.

Would You, Could You Wednesday
We read "Green Eggs and Ham" and tasted some green scrambled eggs. Then we made a graph of whether we liked the green eggs (I know there are 15 eggs in the yes of our eggs went missing before I took this).

Bartholomew Thursday
We read "Bartholomew and the Oobleck" and made green oobleck! Then we played with and explored the oobleck (I did this in a small group to minimize the mess). We drew a picture of the oobleck and wrote describing words. Click to download my Observation Sheet.

Fox in Socks Friday
Today, the children wore silly socks (striped, polka dots, mismatched, etc). We read "Fox in Socks" and then created a graph of our socks to answer the question, "Are you wearing silly socks today?" Since we're on Maui, most of the kids wear "slippers" (flip flops) to school, so not very many ended up wearing silly socks...but we still got some graphing in!

Next week, we will graph our favorite Dr. Seuss books in a picture graph. All this graphing came just in time...our math curriculum just happens to cover graphing this week! What did you do for Dr. Seuss week? I'd love to hear your ideas!

  7. While picking your auto, hold up until your awful credit advance comes through before you get an auto. Try not to include things that have a consistent pay, similar to guarantees and protection to your advance since it just makes reimbursement longer. check cashing
