Top 3 Thursday - Dr. Suess Week!



Read Across America day is on Dr. Seuss's birthday -March 2nd. At our school, we have a Seusstastic week all week long!



Here are a 3 of my favorite activities we have planned for next week.


All Dr. Seuss books are fun to read but I think that "Green Eggs and Ham" has to be my FAVORITE to read out loud to my class! 


There are many activities that we do with this story but the yummiest one has to be making and eating this sweet version of "green eggs". To make this, all you need is pistachio pudding and Nilla wafers (rainbow sprinkles are a fun touch).

Another Dr. Seuss favorite is Bartholomew and the Oobleck


After reading, we make our own Oobleck

Oobleck ingredients

1 part water

1.5 to 2 parts cornstarch

Small amount of food coloring (optional)



Mix ingredients

Start with the water in a bowl and add the cornstarch a bit at a time.
Keep stirring until it has a gooey consistency. You may want to use your hands.
When the oobleck is just right, slowly add food coloring, if you want. This can be a challenge to get it mixed properly.
Play with it!


This website has some fun ideas for activities you can do with your Oobleck: http://www.livescience.com/21536-oobleck-recipe.html 


And of course it wouldn't be Dr. Seuss week without reading "The Cat in the Hat"!


After reading, we make these fun "cat in the hat" rhyming hats out of construction paper and sentence strips.
