Here’s some fun things we did for the rest of Dr. Seuss week.
Green Eggs and Ham:
There was a man who wrote some books and Seuss was his name-O!
S-E-U-S-S, S-E-U-S-S, S-E-U-S-S
and Seuss was his name –O!
We played with green eggs and tongs!
Dollar Tree Easter Eggs and any tongs will do.
We painted Green Eggs!
(p. 31 MailBox 2011)- green paint, shaving cream and glue. (equal parts shaving cr. and glue, add some paint to color)
Have the kids draw 2 or 3 circles,draw the whites around the outside and paint.
We also had Ham for lunch! One of the kids is allergic to eggs, so we skipped that part!
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish:
We Made a fishing rod out of a bamboo stick from the Dollar Tree, and attached a big safe magnet from the Dollar Tree. Cut fish out fish from a picture I found off google , and then put paperclips on the front of each fish. We then went fishing on the pond (a blue piece of material)!
We also sorted out goldfish on mats: one fish two fish counting fish0001
We also colored some fish and put them in a bowl with this cute printable: http://www.activityvillage.co.uk/goldfish_bowl_printable_activity.htm
The Foot Book:
Rhyme-This Little Piggy: what Foot day is complete without many rounds of This Little Piggy!
This little piggy went to the library
This little piggy stayed home
This little piggy had popcorn
This little piggy had none
and This little piggy cried Me Me Me can’t wait to get home!
Find an object (less than five of their feet in length) in your house and measure how many “feet” long it is. Continue to measure things around your house. Ask your child to make a Prediction about how many “feet” the object will be before you measure it. *Note: for older children you can actually chart out their predictions and measurements to see if their predictions improve with their experience in measuring with their “feet.”
Matching-Matching Animal Feet
Trace kids feet or shoes and make a “foot” poster.
We painted out feet too!
Wocket In My Pocket:
POCKET SONG- (Use the appropriate hand & body movements to go with the words. )
I’ve got something in my pocket.
It belongs across my face.
I keep it very close at hand,
in a most convenient place.
I’m sure you couldn’t’ guess it
If you guessed a long, long while.
So I’ll take it out and put it on.
It’s a great big happy smile!

We made a Yottle in a Bottle! There is a really cute printout, and I had a willing husband help me drink soda, so we could get enough bottles for everyone! We colored, added a straw and too cute!
