Today we had a great day filled with Dr. Seuss activities. We started off the day by reading The Cat in the Hat. Then we made our own Cat in the Hat
- The kids painted the back of a paper plate black.
- While those were drying, we worked on the hats. They used red construction paper to make a pattern of red and white.
- On tag board white paper I cut out circles to use as the cat’s face. They used googly eyes, pom poms for the nose, and pipe cleaners for the whiskers to make the face. They glued that to the paper plate.
- I stapled the hat to the paper plate and then the kids added triangle ears.
After our craft was finished we had some fun Dr. Seuss centers. The discovery table was filled with little Cat in the Hat toys that they loved playing with after hearing the story.
We also worked on patterning using these great styrofoam red and white circles that my friend let me borrow. The kids had to stack them up using a pattern as high as they could. They loved this!
We ended the day by reading Green Eggs and Ham. I couldn’t read that book without making some green eggs and ham. Almost of my class tried them and loved them. My daughter Emily ate two plates full and then asked her Daddy if he could make her some for breakfast on Saturday. It was a fun day!
