Dr. Seuss Fun

We had so much fun learning about the author Dr. Seuss and reading all his books for a week!  I have two students with severe allergies to eggs so we couldn't eat real green eggs and ham this year. Had to change it up and my friend Heather found this cute idea on Pinterest.  
It was pretty fun helping her make them and my kiddos really liked eating these green eggs and ham treats!  So simple, all it took was white candy melts, green M&M's, and pretzel sticks.
They liked them soooo much they wanted to eat more of them, I told them if they asked Zero the Hero who was coming the following week...just maybe he could bring us some again, lol...and he did.;)
I found these super cute Dr. Seuss hats at Michaels on sale and had to get them for our class.  I normally have them paint their hats and them put them on sentence strips but I just couldn't pass on these hats!  To end the week we had green ice cream floats with sprinkles and watched Green Eggs and Ham!
For one of our writing lessons, I read the book, Oh the Places You'll Go and we talked about where we would like to go if we were on a hot air balloon.  I took a picture of them while they wrote in their writing journals and then rewrote our sentence on a writing paper.  We then made the hot air balloons out of construction paper and assembled them.  They turned out pretty cute!
Every day I read a different Dr. Seuss book and we did an activity to go along with the story.  Here is a picture of our Thing 1 and Thing 2 craft, the Cat and the Hat, and our writing activity!  
The writing paper came from Mrs. Jump's Dr. Seuss Unit.  We had so much fun, the kids continued to read Dr. Seuss books at the library center.  Fun, fun!:)
