Hi all! it's almost that time.....St. Patrick's Day. What will you be doing in your classroom. I will posting some pics of items I purchased to use for this holiday. I need to make my DD a t-shirt. I am now cutting out people and assessories for a leprechaun glyph. If you would like the glyph, leave a comment.
I also love this story. My students were able to listen to the story and answer comprehensive questions and then watch the movie. We compared the movie vs. the book. To their surprise there were big differences. Here are some math and ELA ( english language arts) skills that were covered:rhyming, color words, and syllables. I used the kangaroo and joey from the Animal Kingdom cart. For math we covered one to one correspondence, sequencing numbers 1-50, and counting sets of coins as well as identifying coins and their values.
What a wonderful delight! Would you eat green eggs and ham?........................ Yes, I would. Made some for my DD and she was like.......NO THANKS!
This story was a hit in my class. Here are some of the activities we did after reading this book:
The eggs were cut from the Doodle Charm cart and the hams were cut from the From My Kitchen cart. Students practiced one to one correspondence using paper plates and little hams. They also practiced sequencing numbers 1-30 and money skills during math centers. The coin stickers were purchased at my local teac her store.
The Thing 1 and Thing 2 hats as well as the Cat in the Hat hats came from my local School Box teacher store (thing 1 & 2 hats) and Michael's craft store ( cat in the hat) .
I made a shirt for my DD in celebrations of Dr. Seuss' birthday. It was made with heat vinyl. The circles were cut from George & Basic Shapes. The wording was cut from Lyrical Letters. Check out her socks. They were purchased at the Dollar Tree at Christmas.
That day I also gave away as prizes theses m&m stix, cat in the hat erarsers, pencils, and some other misc. goodies.

Well, like I promised, here are some other skills covered and Seuss books read during Seuss week. I found the Cat in the Hat puzzle at Border's. Thing 1 and Thing 2 puppets came from Michael's craft store. They had a great variety of Seuss-sational instructional items. At each table, during math, I created tiny cats for 1 to 1 correspondence ( the plates had numbers on them), red bow ties for sequencing numbers with money and numbers 1- 30, and cat faces with coins. Students matched the coins and amounts.
