1-2-3 Come Do Some More Green Eggs and Ham Activities With Me

Did you know that Dr. Seuss wrote Green Eggs and Ham on a bet that he couldn’t write a book with fifty or fewer distinct words?  After doing some checking, I discovered that the bet was made in 1960 with Bennett Cerf, the co-founder of Random House, and was for $50.  Ironically, even though Seuss wrote Green Eggs and Ham using EXACTLY 50 words, it's been reported that Cerf never paid up.

I was intrigued, so I grabbed my copy and painstakingly found all 50 words, then alphabetized them in a handy list, as well as on an anchor chart poster, and YES(!) all but 8 of those words (6 of which are nouns) are also listed on our Dolch lists. (Happily, 6 of the other nouns that he used, ARE listed on the Dolch list of nouns.)

Students could also pick a partner, and play "Speed" against them, to see who can arrange their set of cards in alphabetical order first. The packet also includes a 2-page tip list of ideas, like "Kaboom!".

For writing practice, print, laminate and trim the cards.  Toss them into a Seuss hat and have students choose 2-3 and incorporate those words in sentences.  Remind them to use proper spacing, capitalization and end punctuation

1-2-3 Come Do Some Green Eggs and Ham Activities With Me

I think one of the reasons that Seuss is so popular with children, is that he captures the reader's attention with outlandish characters, tongue-twisting alliteration, and nonsense words that complete the sing-song rhyme, a poetic beat that has become synonomous with Seuss

It wasn't 'til I started teaching that I too hopped on board the Seuss bandwagon.  You might go as far as to say I became quite "obseussed" wth Seuss and all things silly.

No matter what grade I taught, the cat was always the chosen favorite on our "Who's Your Favorite Seuss Character?" graph.  I thought this was perhaps, because we had done a lot of Cat in the Hat-themed activities.

Green Eggs and Ham quickly became "the" favorite, 'til of course I introduced them to the Lorax... Today's blog article features some of my most popular Green Eggs and Ham downloads. seuss activities, shape activities, shape games, contraction activities, emergent readers, color activities, color words, color games, green eggs and ham activities, green eggs and ham games, common core seuss, seuss writing prompts, march writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, green eggs and ham bulletin boards,  do you like green eggs graph, telling time games, telling time to the hour activities, telling digital time activities, analog time activities, color word activities, green eggs and ham games,

The Green Eggs and Ham packet is a whopping 65-pages long, and covers all sorts of reading, writing and math Common Core State Standards. The packet includes green eggs and ham-themed alphabet cards, as well as number cards from 0 to 120. 

My personal favorite part of the packet, is the 3D writing prompt craftivity pictured.  Completed projects make an interesting bulletin board for March is Reading Month.  Students write whether they like green eggs and ham or not; the half paper plate features 2 things that they like to eat, as well as a combo they think is disgusting.

The packet also includes a "Would You Eat Green Eggs?" graph.  Each year I find that I'm in the minority, as most of my Y5s are quite adventurous and would eat Sam's green eggs.

Run the template off on a variety of shades of green to use with Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham, or use pastel colors for springtime. Keep the laminated eggs in a basket.

 1-2-3 Come Do Some Telling Time Activities With Me

Since March is national reading month, and Dr. Seuss's Cat in the Hat is a symbol for Read Across America, I like to do all sorts of Seuss-themed activities in all my subjects, not just reading.  With that in mind, I designed some telling time activities using Seuss's iconic Cat in the Hat's hat. 

Practicing analog & digital time to the hour and half hour with these Seuss-themed  games, make learning these concepts less tedious and more fun.

The packet includes:

seuss activities, seuss games, telling time games, telling time activities, cat in the hat activities, cat in the hat games, common core seuss, analog time activities, analog time games, digital time games, digtital time activities, clock cards, clock posters, telling time pocket chart cards, telling time assessments, assessments for telling time to the hour, assessments for telling time to the half hour, telling time certificates, 1.MD.3Two "It's Time For Seuss" dice games.  (One to the hour, the other to the half hour.) There's a large worksheet as well as a smaller one, with two-on-a-page for quick printing.

You may find that some children will draw the hour hand on a clock that shows 12:30 directly on the 12, which is incorrect. Use the poster to explain things, then hang it up as a reminder.

I thought it would be cute to make the tip of my clothespins look like mini Cat in the Hat hats.  Simply trim and stick on a white Avery address label, then add stripes with a red marker. 

Toss the cards and a few clothespins into a Seuss hat or other container.  To make this independent center game self-checking, simply put a dot on the back of each card.  When a child clips a clothespin to the correct digital time, they can flip the card over to see if their clothespin is covering the dot.

There are 6 clock cards on a page (2 pages total) for easy printing.

Students choose a partner, and play "Speed" to see who will be the first to sequence all of their cards. You could also use them to play Memory Match and "I Have; Who Has?" games.

I'm off to do a zillion and one errands, not the least of which is to mail our taxes at the post office.  So happy that's done!  Wishing you a sunshiny day.

1-2-3 Come Review Vowels With The Cat and the Hat and Me

As you add vocabulary words to your word wall, it's a good idea to continue to reinforce vowel sounds with your students.  With this in mind, I thought it would be fun to do something with a Seuss theme to review vowels.   The Cat in the Hat seemed like the perfect helper.  vowel activities, cat in the hat activities, seuss activities, seuss crafts, daily 5 word work, seuss word work, common core seuss, activities to go with seuss books, cat in the hat activities, whole group assessing, alphabet activities, alphabet games, alphabet assessments

Using the sweet clip art of myclipartstore.com,  I designed Seuss's tall cat to represent long vowels, and then made a shorter cat for the short vowels. 

There's a template with all of the vowels on one page, (upper and lowercase versions) as well as patterns with all of the cats showing one letter.  This way you can choose to work on one vowel at a time, or all five, picking your pattern accordingly. 

Run the cats off, trim and then glue them to the appropriate short and long vowel boxes.  I used turquoise paper for the long vowels, and yellow paper for the short vowels.  Glue them together, laminate, trim and attach to a Popsicle stick with glue dots.  

To easily sort and differentiate, use a different colored Popsicle stick for each vowel group. (For example, all of the A's are on red sticks, the E's on yellow etc.) 

vowel activities, cat in the hat activities, seuss activities, seuss crafts, daily 5 word work, seuss word work, common core seuss, activities to go with seuss books, cat in the hat activities, whole group assessing, alphabet activities, alphabet games, alphabet assessmentsI've included a comprehensive list of words for all of the long vowels, as well as a list for all of the short vowels.  I drew from elementary word wall lists, as well as the Dolch lists (PK-3rd) so that you have a nice variety to choose from.

Pass out whatever vowel cat paddles that you want to work on, call out a word from your list, and have students flip and hold up their cat paddle with the answer.  You can see at a glance who is having difficulty. 

If you want to cover all of the vowels at the same time, only the students with that vowel cat hold up their stick.  Click on the link to view/download the Vowel Cat in the Hat Paddles packet.
