Dr. Seuss

Check out our faces of Dr. Suess characters.  If you would like the print you can 1) email me and I can send it, 2) click on the below link, enlarge the photo of your child, and click download at the top (it looks like a half a box with a down arrow)  Enjoy!

Dr. Suess Faces :)

On Monday, we watched Cat and the Hat read aloud on the computers and then we got to making our own hats.  Students first thought of rhyming words in the at family and wrote them on their hats.  They then patterned red, white, red, white.  They could then wear their hats around or put them in their cubbies.

We also introduced some Dr. Seuss Apps on the iPad for the students to work on letters, rhyming, and listening to some books.

We created some Dr. Seuss Dough with baby oil, flour, and red and blue glitter.  Students really have fun with this table--though it is not very good at staying in our sensory table!

On Tuesday we read There is a Wocket in my Pocket. We discussed that they are imaginary creatures and they can look any way that we want but they must have all the body parts.  We made a list of what body parts it needed to be a Wocket and wrote them on the board.  On Wednesday morning, they designed their wockets and pockets.

On Wednesday, we read Green Eggs and Ham and we made a project with them.  We rolled a dice, counted that many eggs, colored them green and glued them on a plate.  We then repeated that for a second time on another plate.  Students then compared the plates to see which at more and which had less.  They then circled the word more and the word less by the appropriate plate.

On Thursday, we made some green eggs to try.  We first made our own small batch, then we all had to take a try.  If we did not like them they went in the garbage, but if we did like them, we ate them up.  They then had t write their name by how they felt about the eggs.   At our circle time, we discussed our results.  Students then helped me write the summary by helping me with the initial sound of each word.
