Dr. Seuss Week

We started the week off with a bang!  Cat in the hat was one of our favorite stories! We made cat in the hat crafts to practice making AB patterns and fine motor skills.  They ripped up red paper to make the red pattern.  Then, students used Dr. Seuss books to find rhyming words.  They could be real or make believe! 

For our writing this week, we compared and contrasted the Cat in the Hat and the cat in the hat snack we made.  The snack sure was yummy!!

We wrote adjectives about the snack!

Then we wrote adjectives about the cat in the hat! 

Then we used the adjectives to write descriptive words about each topic.  Then, we wrote how they were the same and different.

Also, during Read Across America Week we read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish!  We played a fishing game where the students had to catch a fish and write the number on the paper as well as the 3 numbers that come after it. 

I made the fishing rods by getting sticks at Wal Mart, string, magnet pieces (sticky kind), clothes pins, and a hot glue gun.  I tied the string to the clothes pin and the stick and used the hot glue gun to secure it. I then attached a magnet piece to the clothes pin and to the back of the fish so that they could be "caught."  

Green eggs and ham day!! We read the fun book and then made a prediction of whether we would like it or not.  

 All of the kids liked the treat except two! They ate it like crazy and wanted seconds and thirds!  What fun we had!  

Friday was Dress like your Favorite Dr. Seuss Character Day! 

The reading group that I teach practiced all week for a Reader's Theater performance.  One group did the Red Fish, Blue Fish play and another group did The Cat in the Hat.  They were wonderful!
