Currently March and Dr. Seuss' (Belated Birthday)

(Hop on over and see Farley here!)

Oh happy day! It is March...I know it is 5 whole days into March. We celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday all last week by reading his books and doing this fun activity with "Green Eggs and Ham." I made my students a treat for the occasion.  I bought vanilla candy coating, melted it and put a green M&M and pretzels (to represent ham). I got the idea from this pin I pinned on Pinterest a while back. Then we wrote about what other green food we do not like!  Here are some samples...first grade translation provided for free :)

"I do not like green chicken. I would not eat it when the dog barks.  I would not eat it in the parks."

"I do not like green meat. I would not eat them on a roof. I would not eat them with a tooth."

"I do not like green pizza. I would not eat it with a bear. I would not eat it in a lair."

I wholeheartedly agree with that last one!  Who wants to eat with a bear?!?  Too cute and they had so much fun!  Happy belated birthday Dr. Seuss!  Apple on everyone!

Love your green eggs and ham treat. That's so cute. My assistant made green eggs and ham for our class and they loved it.
