Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! What a fun day. We started off the day with a breakfast of Green Eggs and Ham casserole. Before trying it, students came up and predicted if they would like it or not. After trying it, they came back up and filled in whether or not they liked it.
Since I did not have any way to actually cook green eggs and ham in my classroom, I got up early this morning and made two green egg and ham casseroles. It’s just the same egg casserole that I always make, but I put in green food coloring with the eggs. I have to admit, it did look disgusting because of the green, but it tasted pretty good.
Lay out one package of crescent rolls on the bottom of a sprayed pan. Cut up ham and sprinkle over the crescent rolls. Beat 12 eggs in a dish and stir in about 1/4 cup of milk (put in green food coloring). Pour over ham. Sprinkle about 1 cup of cheese on top. Bake 40 minutes at 350.
Some of the kiddos just could not get over the color, but others LOVED it and kept saying, “You’re the best cook ever.” LOL!
Then of course, we read Green Eggs and Ham and talked about the lesson we learned from the story.
We also made Dr. Seuss hats to wear today.
We read the book Cat in the Hat and discussed the difference between the cat and the fish.
We also read The Cat in the Hat Came Back and compared and contrasted the two stories.
I have really enjoyed watching my students eyes light up while reading Dr. Seuss books this week. They are so into it.
