S is for Seussapalooza

Oh. My. Seussness.

Today was a Wacky Friday.

Some crazy person (me) suggested that the second grade team switch class all day today and do different Seuss activities.

I was busy, but fun!

I am so thankful for all of the wonderful resources out there. We did not have to reinvent the wheel!

Here are the things the students did with each teacher:

(Click the pictures for the links.)

The SUPER FANTASTIC Horton. He turned out so cute!

from Erica Bohrer

They made some fun little fish in bowls. (I think some fish got lost! Roll call! One fish? Here! Two fish? Here! Red fish? Blue fish?)

Wockets in Pockets!

They made Blue Goo outside. I wish you could see their faces. Their grossed out expressions cracked me up when I saw the pictures.

 They made the obligatory hat.

And with me, they wrote about the Lorax.

I made mine into a hat to be extra cool.

Of course I had to strike a pose for our fab photographer. =P
It came from The Teaching Bug. (For free!)

The darlings had Green Eggs and Ham made by our FABULOUS cafeteria ladies and they were sent home with a bag of colored Goldfish and Scrabble Cheeze-Its that had the cutest bag topper. (Also free!)

I think Dr. Seuss would have loved the activities we did in his honor today. There's just so much stuff to do that we could just make it a Suessy month!

I hope you had a day as fun filled as ours. Who's going to see the Lorax tonight?!



  1. I love the Lorax hat! :) Our cafeteria also did green eggs and ham! I have to admit, I didn't try them, but my kids thought they were great! Don't you love it when we can just have FUN with the kids! :) Glad you had such a great day!


  2. Fun Dr. Seuss ideas!! Love that the ladies in the cafeteria fixed green eggs and ham!
