Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Monday was Dr. Seuss' birthday! In the morning, the kids ate green eggs and ham in the cafeteria before coming to our room. Then, we spent the rest of the day doing different Dr. Seuss themes stations and activities, and reading Dr. Seuss books! But the best part of the day ... WE GOT TO WEAR OUR PAJAMAS!

After breakfast, we came back to the room and read our first Dr. Seuss book of the day, Green Eggs and Ham. One of the girls has been practicing reading that book for the past couple of weeks, so I let her read to the class while I showed them the pictures.

During math that morning, the kids did different Dr. Seuss themed stations. They played Dr. Seuss addition Chutes and Ladders, colored a 100's chart mystery picture, added with red fish and blue fish, and played Dr. Seuss tic-tac-toe.

We did stations all morning until it was time for lunch. After lunch, we came back and read The Sneetches (a story about accepting other and my favorite Dr. Seuss story) and played pin the star on the Sneetch!

They pushed me!

Once we finished our game of pin the star on the Sneetch, we made ... GREEN DEVILED EGGS! First, the kids peeled their eggs (after washing their hands of course) and then brought them to me so I could cut them and take out the yolks. Then, we went to the carpet and they told me which ingridents we had to put in our bowl to make our deviled eggs.

After our eggs, we read There's a Wocket in my Pocket and tried to make up our own silly nonsense rhymes. Afterward, the kids made their rhyming Cat in the Hat hats while I got ready for our sciencey part of Dr. Seuss Day ... making oobleck!

We mixed corn starch and water together and put some green food coloring in it to make it look just like to oobleck book.

The kids got to make their own green oobleck and take in home in a little baggie. As our day came to an end we read most of The Lorax before heading home. 

Happy Dr, Seuss Day!
