I love when I am able to incorporate some of my favorite activities that I did as a classroom teacher into our home school days. We got together with friends this year and celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday with a Read Across America celebration.
We began our day with a reading of "Green Eggs and Ham" and of course had to try some of our own. I think almost all of the kiddos tried them and liked them. We may have had one or two opt out of the green eggs. Ha! I can't say I blame them. They do look weird.
Playing a rhyming word rely game
Shared reading with friends
My favorite part of the day was our Reader's Theatre. Everyone had a part and dressed up as their character. Each reader made their own costume. They were all so creative!! Here are our narrators (The Cat in the Hat)
Thing 1 and Thing 2
Somehow I didn't get a picture of Mr. Brown and the Fish in a Dish. They were just as fantastic as all of our other readers.
Finally we ended the day with making our own book marks
I think everyone had a great time celebrating reading and the wonderful Dr. Seuss.
