We focused on a book a day, but I supplemented with others for read alouds. There are just too many good ones!
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
We made a shape book of words that rhyme with fish.
Click on the fish black line picture to go to the site that has shape books.
I manipulated it to make the mini book.
Click picture for shape book master.
We drew an underwater scene and wrote about what we could find in the water.
The Cat in the Hat
We made hats and bow ties.
We wrote about what would happen if Thing 1 and Thing 2 came to our houses!
If I Ran the Zoo
Before reading we brainstormed about what we knew about zoo, and what kinds of animals live there.
After we read the book, we created a class animal. It was a ladybug-elephant-cheetah. Then we wrote a sentence to describe it.
Then the kids got to create and write about the animal they would find for their own zoo!
Green Eggs and Ham
We graphed before we read.
Do you THINK you'll like green eggs and ham?
Did you like green eggs and ham?
I was very surprised! Everyone tried and LOVED the green eggs and ham!!
We had lots and lots of fun celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday this week!
I couldn't bring myself to eat the green eggs...Could you?
