We had our Dr. Seuss birthday/ Read Across America read-a-thon celebration this week in class. The kids wore their jammies and brought pillows and blankets so we could snuggle in while we read. We read a lot of different Dr. Seuss books and some activities that went with them. This year was especially fun because the kids really got into how fun Dr. Seuss books. There was giggling and comments about how silly things were. It was fun to see them enjoy an author that we all love so much. Here is some of what we did:
We started with I Can Read With My Eyes Shut which is a great classic about the importance of reading.
Among other books, we made Cat in the Hat hats after reading The Cat in the Hat
We found red and blue (and purple) fish hidden around the room and created a venn diagram after reading One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
We read The Lorax and made these awesome Lorax plant holders. The tutorial can be found at the Little Birdie Secrets website.
We read all over the place and had a great time.
And of course we ended the day by eating green eggs and ham after reading Green Eggs and Ham.
