I would eat them in a house! I would eat them with a mouse!

This week my focus was to redo my bulletin displays outside my room.  I took down my door display and still haven't thought of anything to put on it! ugh, but i did take down the ground hog glyph and added our Hortons!

Yesterday we started the day by reading Green Eggs and Ham and doing the cute writing activity in The First Grade Parade's March Madness pack.  We voted on who liked and who didn't like them.  Students put their "egg" in the Yes, Oh Yes! or the NO, Oh No! column.  Next, we read Cat in the Hat and completed a Thing 1/Thing 2 glyph.  Students got to enjoy Cat and the Hat parfaits (red jello/cool whip layers)! Then, we read Horton Hears a Who and did these Horton crafts above. Due to running out of time, I skimmed Bartholomew and the Oobleck.  Students loved playing in the oobleck.  We finished the day with watching Horton Hears a Who. Students also brought beach towels and Dr. Seuss books for D.E.A.R. time! Very eventful.

Next week we are starting FAIRY TALES :) and plants. Jack and the Beanstalk anyone?  It will be a great week!
