Dr. Seuss Center fun and exploration

Huge Thank You to the parents that came in to volunteer in the classroom to read to our wonderful students.  Our children had a great time exploring the special center activity that each of you were able to help with.  Thank you for taking time out of your day to come in and share with our students!  

Due to the snow storm, we were able to celebrate Dr. Seuss for two weeks!  YIPPEE!  Below you will see some great activities that we participated in doing throughout our Dr. Seuss Theme.

Ten Apples Up On Top was read to the class and our students were able to trace 10 apples on red construction paper and then cut them out.  We asked the students to write the numbers 1 - 10 on their apples as they used glue to count and paste them onto paper.  They also wrote "10 Apples" as their heading.

Green Eggs and Ham was read to the class and the students were able to use green colored eggs on spoons as a gross motor activity walking around the classroom practicing their balancing skills.  We even got daring and tried to walk backwards, sideways, and when the music stopped we had to freeze with a birdy leg in the back.  AWESOME BALANCING!  And check out those Cat in the Hat projects on some of their heads, we love making anything to wear home and they did all of the cutting by themselves!

Put Me In The Zoo was read to the class.  The students were able to trace the animal and use Q-tips to color the different colored spots (orange, violet, green, blue, and red).  These are hanging in our room and will go home with students soon.  Using the q-tips helped with fine motor skills and practicing using smaller amounts of paint to specialize and detail their work.

One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish was read to the class.  Miss Shelly made blue jello and the students practiced their hand eye coordination filling a cup with a scoop of jello and then adding red candied fish to them.  We enjoyed our snack at the end of class.  The "mmm Miss Shelly this is the best Jell-o ever" was heard all around!
