The kids were given the task of tracing objects from the room, labeling them, and then using one cube to measure the lengths. They did a fantastic job! They worked together well with their partners and were able to demonstrate the correct way to measure.
To wrap up our Dr. Seuss week, the kids dressed up as their favorite character. The kids were really creative and looked fantastic! In math, we made truffula trees and wrote math facts on them and also made a picture graph of our favorite Dr. Seuss books. We wrote an acrostic poem about Dr. Seuss, and we just had a lot of fun!
We read this cute book today and wore green to school. We also read a nonfiction book about Dr. Seuss. Here are a few interesting facts we learned: his real name was Theodore Seuss Geisel; he was quiet in school and lonely at times; he wrote his books for children and his own amusement; his first book was And To Think I Saw It On Mulberry Street.
To remember and celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2nd, we have a fun week planned full of learning and activities surrounding this author and his books. Today we read The Cat in the Hat, wore red and white to school, made Thing 1 and Thing 2 hats, and began reading and interpreting our book of Dr. Seuss quotes.
