Celebrating Dr. Seuss

We had a very busy Friday today! So much happened that I want to write two separate blog posts! I will blog later on to share our culmination event. 
Today is Dr. Seuss' birthday and Read Across America day! Dr. Seuss is such a timeless author-I, personally, grew up with Dr. Seuss and he taught me rhyming and it's amazing how his books are doing the same to the students I now teach! We celebrated by READING! :) We had several Dr. Seuss read alouds today! We made it interactive by having the class complete the rhymes! We also celebrated with cooking some green eggs for our breakfast. Using eggs, milk, salt, pepper and green food coloring-we whipped up some green scrambled eggs. We passed around the bowl for everyone to have an opportunity to whisk the eggs and then some volunteers sprinkled in some salt and pepper.

We also created "Cat in the Hat" hats to wear for the day! We reviewed creating patterns on the hats!

I want to end this blog post with a quote from one of my favorite Dr. Seuss book Oh, the Places You'll Go! We didn't have time to read it today--but I'll be sharing the book with the class on Monday! :) It's an uplifting read at any age! Click this link to see the text.
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
