March 2nd marked Dr. Seuss’
birthday and kicked off our ‘Seuss Week’. As a first grade, we learned,
read, created, ate, and wrote all things Seuss! So, I am linking up with Kacey
at Doodle Bugs Teaching to share with your 5 for Friday: Seuss Style. 🙂
fantastic treats! Green eggs (deviled eggs) and ham, fruit kabobs (the Cat’s
hat), green eggs (chocolate) and ham, lemonade (pink ink), truffla trees (cupcakes),
fish bowls (jello with Swedish fish), and Seuss cake. Before eating, students
connected everything that was on their plates to a Seuss book. It was really
neat to see the book references they could pull out and a nice conclusion to
the week. Needless to say our friends left high on Seuss and sugar!
(and during recess), we passed out oobleck for the students to interact with.
Before, they made predictions about what Oobleck was and what state of matter it
would be in. Then, after they wrote about their reactions and compared Oobleck
as a solid and as a liquid. Although we set down wax paper beforehand, it was a
crazy mess. Regardless, our friends did not care and they LOVED it. Our room was incredibly loud and full of awesomeness.
library of Seuss books and we spent a lot of time at Browsing Box throughout
the week. We used one of my reading response sheets on Thursday. It was a good
way to structure our friends’ time while at centers and made it easy to connect
the center with the common core. If you like what you see, click on the
response sheet below to grab it!
with A Whildly Whimsical Birthday and they have gone great! Our friends love the
blue, red, and yellow theme, and they are definitely being asked to step-up
their math knowledge.
day, picture day, tornado drills, a guest speaker, and Seuss, it was truly a whirlwind…but a wonderful one. 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping
by. I hope you also had a wildly whimsical and wonderful week of teaching and
