What A Week!

Y'all, this week has been crazy!! Dress up days for Read Across America, a bridal shower for a sweet co-worker, my formal observation, you name it, it happened this week. That didn't stop us from having a ton of Seuss related fun though! Here's a little bit of what we did...
Of course, we had to read Green Eggs and Ham and have a taste test of green eggs. I used boiled eggs and I was surprised at how many kids loved it! After we tasted them, we graphed if we liked it then did a little opinion writing.

Wednesday was Wacky Wednesday and I had a meeting at our district office, but we did have time to read the story when I got back and chart the evidence from the story that helped prove it was a wacky day.
We also read The Lorax and used truffula trees to help us with some problem solving during math. The kids got to wear moustaches and they were so engaged!

Fox in Socks also helped us with a little problem solving. My friend Deeanna made this activity page and we drew pictures to help us solve the problem, then we wrote the equation. My kids were so excited when we got to add more than two numbers!

Today, we had a character parade as well as guest readers and my kids were so excited when a baseball player from our local junior college read to our class!

We read Bartholomew and the Oobleck this afternoon and then made our own "Ooey Gooey" that we used to test if items would sink or float. I let tables work together to make predictions then we experimented. They loved it! I think they loved it even more when we outside and they all got to play in it a little! Priceless little faces!

{Even Thing 2 loves Ooey Gooey!}
We ended the day by making hat parfaits with cool whip and red jello. Yum!!

This has been such a fun week, but I'm exhausted. I am going to clean out my TpT cart though! If you haven't take advantage of the big sale, today's the last day! You can check out my store here. If you're celebrating Read Across America next week and need the Ooey Gooey activity or some centers, you can get my Crazy Cat pack here. Happy Weekend!
