Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

We have had a great start to our week celebrating all things Seuss.  We kicked off Monday with the beginning of our new reading incentive...Hats off to Reading!  Students will earn a sticker for every 15 minutes ready.  The goal is to earn 20 stickers by March 31st (up from 15 stickers last month).

Last week we studied Dental Health, so what better way to kick off Dr. Seuss week by reading The Tooth Book.  This great book tells who has teeth and how they come in handy all in rhyme.  So students were challenged.  Could they write how teeth come in handy using rhyme.  It was a fun challenge.  Here is are two examples:
Today we read the favorite, Green Eggs and Ham.  I was inspired to create an alphabet book after seeing adorable stickers at Michaels.  Each student created a page or two.  Would you eat them in an igloo?  Would you eat them with a Kangaroo?  Would you eat them with a Monkey?  These are a few examples.  Tomorrow our Kindergarteners are eating green eggs and ham.  I cannot wait to hear all about it!

I am looking forward to tomorrow...Wacky Wednesday!  I will be posting photos.
