In kindergarten, every day is a reason to celebrate! Last week was no different...we celebrated Dr. Seuss!
Our morning work was a little color word practice with some green eggs (and also blue and red and orange...) but no ham. As the children worked on their morning work, we watched a little Cat in the Hat!
I love the Dollar Spot at Target (okay I just really love Target in general!). That's where I got these pencils for the special day.
You can't have a Dr. Seuss day without silly hats! Usually, I have my kiddos make simple Cat in the Hat top hats, but this year I decided to go with Thing 1 and Thing 2! First we made the blue hair. I gave each child 2 pieces of construction paper with a line drawn along the line side. They cut straight down, remembering to stop at the pencil line.
When both papers were cut, I stapled them together to make one long fringy paper.
Then I stapled the ends together to fit each child's head!
And here are all the "Things" in kindergarten!
Our day was sprinkled with other reminders of Dr. Seuss! During Reading Rotations in the morning, these children matched up color words using eggs and colored yolks. (These are free at my tpt store here.)
These kiddos also matched up the Dr. Seuss rhyming cards, also free here!)
In our classroom library, children read stories to our book buddies.
In this math station, the children made themselves with "10 apples up on top!" They added 10 apples to the tops of their heads, coloring some red and some green.
Each child then wrote a math sentence about their picture, like 5+5=10. or 6+4+10, or 3+7=10.... We showed so many ways to make 10!
And a special day calls for a special rest time...Dr. Seuss books, along with other favorites!
