“Oh the thinks you can think up only if you try” said Dr. Seuss! Here are the thinks we thought up during Dr. Seuss Week last month:
MONDAY was Cat in The Hat Day. Students wore silly hats! In Reading, they listened to “The Cat in the Hat” by Dr. Seuss. In Visual Arts, they worked on creating a Cat in the Hat out of paper and a plate. In Language and Writing, students wrote independently what they would do if the “Cat in the Hat” came to their house. Students worked on listening to each letter sound and identifying what letter comes next in the word they were trying to write. Students also took words such as hat, hop, can, and am and came up with rhyming words to go along with them. In Math, they counted Dr. Seuss characters and circled the greater number.
TUESDAY was Fox in Socks Day. Students wore silly socks to school! In Reading, they listened to “Fox in Socks” by Dr. Seuss. In Visual Arts, students colored a picture of what their socks looked like. In Language and Math, they placed on a graph that showed if they wore crazy socks or not. Then, they completed their own worksheet that went along with the class graph they created. It was so much fun playing math games as they counted the number of people who did wear silly socks and the number of people who did not! They then colored in the correct number of boxes on their graph to match the classroom data chart. Afterwards, students had a lively discussion about which side had more and which side had less. In Writing, students also worked on writing the letters F and S. They focused on writing them correctly on the lines.
WEDNESDAY was Wacky Wednesday. Students enjoyed dressing in wacky clothes! InReading, they listened to “Wacky Wednesday” by Dr. Seuss. They enjoyed reading the story Wacky Wednesday and picking out all of the things in the story that were wacky. InMath and Writing, students counted and identified all the things that were wacky in the classroom. Students wrote about what was wacky that day! In Language, kindergarten students completed a Dr. Seuss rhyming book where they had to come up with rhyming words to go along with given words such as cat, two, ham, fish, red, and egg.
THURSDAY was Green Eggs and Ham Day. In Reading, students listened to “Green Eggs and Ham” by Dr. Seuss. In Language, they enjoyed picking out the rhyming words that went along with the book. In Writing, students wrote about what they would like to eat and what they would not like to eat. All the students achieved the goal of independently writing about what they wanted to eat! Students worked closely on making sure they wrote neatly so that the words fit in the space provided.
