Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Today we did all things Dr. Seuss!  We have been reading his books and discussing his writing style during Reader's Workshop for over a week.  They have noticed that he uses a lot of sight words in his books and loves to rhyme!  They noticed some word families!  They also love his imaginary creatures!  Today we started out with a couple visitors!

Me and my amazing Teacher's Assistant, Mrs. Hoang...I mean, Thing 1 and Thing 2!
The kids wanted in on the fun, bringing Things 3 thru 29!


We made oobleck which is a very cool substance that is both a solid and liquid at the same time!  Just mix one part water to 2 parts cornstarch!  They were very amazed and enjoyed both making it and playing with it!
Mixing oobleck!  So messy but so fun!
Solid AND liquid!  We discussed the properties of each.
 Then of course, we ate Green Eggs and Ham!  I even showed them real green eggs from a friend of mine who has their own chickens.  They have natural green shells!  All of them except two loved them and even asked for seconds!

This one in the picture below let me know that she does not like eggs...but she tried them and it looks like she likes the green ones!  Haha!

What a great, fun day!
