Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Fan Freebies

Today is officially Dr. Suess' Birthday and so to celebrate and kick off our March reading month festivities and Read Across America, I made this cute poster to display in our classroom window!

Hope you can use it!

I do miss the grins and groans serving up green eggs and ham to my kinders and getting gooey making Oobleck with my firsties!
 Those were some great times! 

You can download this freebie Oobleck recipe from my Dropbox if you feel like rolling up your sleeves for a little gooey green fun! Click on the image below!

What are your plans to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day in the classroom? 


Green Eggs Clipart

Well, after tossing around many ideas and having a good belly laugh over someone's suggestion about the feline in the fedora, which I completely forgot about, here is what I've decided:

The Cat and His Hat, Goo-bleck, and Bart and the Goo-bleck for the same thing, (new name) items.

Since there have been so many restrictions limiting my creativity when it comes to clipart :)~ no matter how much I have, I don't have enough! So, I have enlisted the help of my very artsy and talented friend, Einstein DNA, with some much-needed green egg clip art. Wait till you see what he came up with! This is too funny not to post! He calls it Green Eggs and One Ham! :) Maybe you can use it for one of your creations!

Dr. Seuss Day-Making Oobleck

This year for Dr. Seuss Day, instead of Green Eggs and Ham, we are going to have a good old gooey fun day and mix up some Oobleck! It's so easy to make and a blast for the kids. Just a warning-it can get a little messy but no more than cooking green eggs! I'd love to know how you are celebrating Dr. Seuss Day! Feel free to leave a comment or two with your creative ideas!

 I just added a literacy unit to Teachers Pay Teachers that I know you and your students will love! It's based on the book Bartholomew and the Oobleck! Read below for the Oobleck recipe!

Making Oobleck

1 cup of water
1 to 2 cups of cornstarch
Mixing bowl
Food coloring (optional)
Pour one cup of cornstarch into the mixing bowl
Now pour the water in, mixing slowly as you go. Keep adding more water until the mixture becomes thick (and hardens when you tap the surface). Add
more cornstarch if it gets too runny, and more water if it becomes too thin.
Add a few drops of food coloring if desired. (It’s easier to add the coloring to the water before you mix it with the cornstarch.)
Mixing can take a while and gets more difficult as the mixture gets thicker! Spoons can bend while stirring!  Consider digging in and using your hands or calling on kids to do the mixing! Allow at least 20 minutes for mixing or do this ahead of time!

****Put the ooblek in a Ziplock bag after it is mixed! It will last well and the kids can still play with it even through the baggie!


 This is the sequencing activity we did to retell the story.

Do You Like Green Eggs and Ham? Dr. Suess Day

It's been a number of years since I've been able to have my traditional green eggs and ham day because in my school, it is reserved as a kindergarten activity. Still, I am thinking of all of the fun times around the green egg taste-testing and silly stuff I once enjoyed with my class. I am working on some new items for everyone getting ready for Dr. Seuss Day!
