Do you like green eggs and ham?

March 2,  is what would have been the 108th birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel. Better known as Dr. Seuss.

In honor of Dr. Seuss, March 2, is also NEA’s Read Across America celebration of reading.  “an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading”

We started off our own celebration today by reading The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. Then we ATE green eggs and ham for breakfast!

Green eggs and ham and our well loved book

And I will eat them with a goat

After breakfast the kids sat down and wrote their own rhymes.
I have a really small roof
and I broke my tooth!

Before snack time we read One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish and then had a Dr. Seuss themed snack.

Jell-o and Swedish fish

Celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday was the perfect way for to learn more about one of our favorite authors and also a good way to get them excited about reading!

If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.
