Today, we celebrated a very special birthday. We celebrated Dr. Seuss' 108th birthday. We did several Dr. Seuss activities. In reading groups, we made Cat in the Hat "hats" with -at words written on them.
Here are some of them holding up their "-at hats":
We also made special Cat in the Hat masks that they loved.
Here are two, cute class pictures with the Cat in the Hat masks :
Later we enjoyed reading Green Eggs and Ham and watching the original, cartoon version of The Cat in the Hat. In math, we had lots of fun with a Cat in the Hat glyph. Here are the questions to this glyph:
1. Are you a boy or a girl?
Girl- Color the bow pink
Boy - Color the bow red
2. Do you like Dr Seuss books?
Yes- Red and White hat
No- Black and Blue hat
3. Do you think cat and hat rhyme?

No- Color the nose orange
4. Do you like Thing One and Thing Two?
Yes- Color the cat's face brown
No- Leave the face white
5. Do you want the Cat in the Hat to visit your house?
Yes- Color the cat brown
No- Color the cat black
Here are some of them holding up their finished Cat in the Hat glyphs:
At the end of the day, we went to Mrs. Johnston's kindergarten room to celebrate Read Across America Day with 3rd grade. The 3rd graders partnered up with the kindergarteners and read Dr. Seuss and other books to them. It was a lot of fun and very sweet sight to see. This 3rd grade class was my first kindergarten class, so it was a very heartwarming and special event.
