“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”
― Dr. Seuss
Dr. Suess was born in March so I find it extremely fun for the kids (and grown-ups) to do a Green Eggs and Ham Party. This works great if combined with St. Patty’s Day because everyone wears green for the event. Children love role playing as we read the book! Fantasy play for children stimulates brain development and encourages critical thinking skills. Reading and acting out books by Dr. Suess is not only fun but fosters many important skills within the young mind such as literacy development, moral and ethical values, language competency and so much more! So pick up a Dr. Suess book and stimulate those young minds!
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
― Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
My kindergarten class holding their favourite Dr. Suess books. We also had crazy Dr. Suess hair for the day!
To make green eggs, we simply put green food colouring in with the eggs and let the children scramble them up!
