We started our day by changing up our little carpool routine. I helped Friday and told each child as they got out of the car that they could RUN down the hall to Mrs. Christi's room IF they told her "Happy Birthday"! OH BOY! Who doesn't want to run in school? Christi said everyone ran in yelling "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" Many of the children brought her cards and gifts. It was so fun to watch her face as more, more children came to school. We talked about Dr. Seuss and sang "Happy Birthday" to him most of the morning. Our art project was scaled back a bit because of our short day. I still think it turned out well.
We headed to our kitchen for our Dr. Seuss One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish snack. I found this printable and enlarged it.
I really wanted to squeeze in our science experiment. It came from the Dr. Seuss book, Bartholomew and the Oobleck . WARNING this experiment is very messy! I got MY recipe from Instructables , of course I didn't follow them EXACTLY (insert evil giggle here!) Everyone had a lot of fun mixing and making a big mess!
Because our time was short we weren't able to do all activities but we ended our day with a new game. We called it "HAT, HAT, CAT!" You play it just like "DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE!" but change out the words! Everyone and I do mean EVERYONE loved running and playing our new game.
All in all it was a short but great day. I'm planning on doing a little tweaking to our calendar for next year. I think we need an entire week to celebrate Dr. Seuss (and Mrs. Christi too)!
Thanks for visiting us! I hope you come back soon. Next week we will be talking about the farm!
