Read Across America!

We have been preparing for Read Across America by reading Dr. Seuss books and activities.

Horton thought us that "a person is a person, no matter how small."

We measured our foot with cubes, paper clips, and a ruler after reading "The Foot Book."

For science and art we learned that water color paint will not "paint" on crayon. We colored and painted fish bowls for "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish." We also graphed colored goldfish, but ate them for a snack.

"The Lorax" is teaching us how to care for our environment.

To celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday we read "Oobleck" and Mrs. Folder was able to catch some Oobleck that fell from the sky at her house yesterday.  This is what we observed from touching the Oobleck:

After reading several Dr. Seuss books we colored book marks of our favorite and graphed our choices.

We ended our celebration with Cat in the Hat "hat" snacks, but that were delicious we ate them before I could take a picture. We had a fun Dr. Seuss, Read Across America Day!
