This school year is my 6th year as a Kindergarten teacher, but I've been teaching for several years. I thought a blog would be a good place to remind myself of things I've done in my class and maybe give someone else something fun to do. :) As Dr. Jean says, "Great teachers are made by the teacher next door". As teachers, we love new and fun ideas, so feel free to comment with your fun ideas too!
We've been having fun dressing in colors in honor of some of the most popular Seuss books. ;)
For Truffula Tuesday, we wore orange and made this cute Lorax out of paper plates.
For Thing Thursday, one of our creative Moms made us Thing cupcakes!
Such fun with Seuss!! We've been rhyming and the kiddos are having fun trying to make up some of their own rhyming words like chimbley! ;)
If you are looking for a fun Seuss game, check out "I Can Do That". The kiddos LOVE it! They have to follow some crazy directions with some Seuss props. Reading skills, some gross, and fine motor; plus the added bonus that it is fun!!
Spring break is here for us tomorrow! Looking forward to a break!
The day it came, the day was here! Dr. Seuss' birthday, the most fun of the year!!
What an exciting day in K it was Friday to celebrate this crazy creative author! The kiddos and parents were very creative and they all dressed up as their favorite Seuss character! We spent the day yesterday enjoying some Seussy fun! We will be spending the month celebrating him, but yesterday was a whole day of fun in honor of him. :)
We made Thing 1 and Thing 2 out of handprints.
Our snack was a green egg in honor of Sam I Am! We had vanilla pudding cups, the kiddos stirred some green food coloring in. Then they poured it on the plate, topped with a vanilla wafer and green sprinkles.
This messy table was actually full of fun! We put out some Seuss books and The Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook, and the kids used playdough to make some Seuss creations! Happy find on Pinterest!
Our dress up center is "Seuss on the Loose" There are stuffed animals for a puppet show, dress up hats and masks to act out characters. :)
House keeping is the Green Eggs and Ham cafe. We have all sorts of breakfast items for the kiddos to play.
Our reading center is full of Seuss books.
This was my headband for my Truffula tree outfit.

Much fun was had by all!!
Next week we are going to have Moooonday in honor of Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? We are going to dress in black and brown.
Found this idea on Pinterest and made up my own...
We are going to have a large sign of all the sounds in the book and the kiddos can fill out this page and draw a picture of what can make that sound.
As a treat in honor of Mr. Brown, we will have some chocolate milk in a special cup! Found the pic online and taped it to clear cups. ;)
Can't believe March is here! Looking forward to some spring fun too!
We'll be having Truffula Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday, and Thing Thurs. this month too!
