Dr. Seuss's Birthday!

Happy 108th birthday, Dr. Seuss! Even though we only had a half-day today, we still did some fun Dr. Seuss activities. To start our day, we added to our "Doodle Table". We had to add a drawing of ourselves with a Dr. Seuss hat on and also write down some rhyming words.

Then we did some Dr. Seuss math. We completed some addition problems with green eggs (and ham). With a partner, each student added an amount of yellow eggs to a plate then his/her partner added an amount of green eggs to the plate. Then they added the eggs to see how many eggs altogether on the plate. After solving the problem, they wrote down the corresponding number sentence.

Finally, we did a Dr. Seuss "adlib" for the story Green Eggs And Ham. They had to come up with a strange food for this activity. There were lots of strange foods such as bug cookies, shredded lettuce water, pickle shrimp, and egg juice. These writings turned out quite funny and the kids loved to hear stories with their names in them.

A short day but still a fun day filled with Dr. Seuss activities. :)
