Last week, we celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday by reading his numerous books, working on our own rhyming skills, and crafting projects that linked our knowledge of Dr. Seuss's work with our learning.

After reading Green Eggs and Ham, we talked about persuasion and how Sam-I-Am was being persuasive. Then I broke out the green eggs to taste-test and the real persuasion began! Just kidding, the kids who wanted to try to green eggs did, and those who didn't were pretty disgusted by the whole thing. It was cute!

Next, we looked back at the prediction chart and compared it to who really like green eggs. Then we graphed who liked and didn't like the green eggs and draw a picture of our own green eggs! 

A few days later, we read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and did some goldfish graphing.  I know it seems like all we do is eat - but I swear it's not! :o)

 We sorted out our colored goldfish and graphed them then wrote which had the most or the least.

Dr. Seuss has created some wonderful resources for teachers, parents, and kids.  He makes reading exciting, interactive, and helps young readers develop rhyming and patterning skills. We love Dr. Seuss!  Visit Seussville for more!
