Whew!! What a
exhausting fun time today! We were very busy today celebrating Dr. Seuss. Which if you were not aware, he not only is a famous author, but he is apparently one of my kindergartner's doctors!!! The things my kindergartners say just crack me up sometimes. Kindergarten and first grade got to make these wonderful Dr. Seuss hats. Good times were had trying to get those pesky white stripes glued and onto the hats. Gallons of glue were used and still some of us had trouble getting them to stick where we wanted them! I think we all wore some of the glue home.
Second graders got to make and eat Cat in the Hat hats. Felt kind of guilty for sugaring up these little guys and then sending them back to their classroom teachers for them to deal with the sugar high that was bound to happen!
Dr. Seuss stickers and bookmarks were also a highlight. At least these shouldn't disrupt the classroom like the hats or sugar highs might!
We enjoyed Dr. Seuss books and story mapped The Cat in the Hat. Kindergarten through third grade wrote on raindrops what they would do if they were home on a rainy day to keep from begin bored. Cute answers! One first grader wrote that she would clean the house. I am sure her mom must LOVE rainy days!! Take a look at our pictures of our map, wall and raindrops.
