Dr. Seuss Day

We joined the masses of kindergarteners nation wide celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday earlier this month. For our Dr. Seuss Day, we ate green eggs and ham for breakfast, while we read Green Eggs and Ham.

After that we read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.  I used the opportunity to teach the /sh/ phonogram.  We then spelled and sounded out some words with /sh/ in them.  fish and its rhymes, and other short vowel words with /sh/ like ship and shut and the like.  We then did this little fish bowl craft.

That was it for our formal study, but over the course of the rest of the day we read some other Seuss titles, including The Foot Book, The Star-Bellied Sneeches, Oh! The Places You'll Go, The Cat in the Hat, and then after rest time we watched the Grinch (the old animated one, not the Jim Carey one).  A good time was had by all!
