Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

We had a wonderful time celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday! 
We made Cat in the Hat hats!  Aren't they adorable?!!?

The kids made their own hats!  We put strips of painters tape on a piece of paper and the kids got to sponge on them.  They are all so unique!  We love exposing the kids to different art medias! 

We read "The Foot Book" by Dr. Seuss on Tuesday. 
Today we read "Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr. Seuss and the kids really enjoyed it!  They were reading right along with me after the second page.  (:
After we read "Green Eggs and Ham", practiced some rhyming.  The kids would probably love to do it again so here are some rhymes we did.
It rhymes with call.
If you trip over my shoelace I would ..... (fall)
