1-2-3 Come Do Some Green Eggs And Ham Activities With Me

Do you read “Green Eggs and Ham” by Dr. Seuss?  It’s one of my students’ favorites.

youtube animated musical video of green eggs and hamBesides reading the story to my kiddos I sometimes like to show them a video.

The one to the left is an 8-minute, animated version that aired on TV. (Click the picture to take a look.)

You could turn the sound off and have the children read along; however, the pages turn rather quickly.

Introduce the lesson with the graphing extension, which you can laminate and hang on the board.

I've included my full-color samples, so that you can quickly print off an example to share. 

Older students can expand their writing on one of the two, blank worksheet options. 

For that finishing touch, students can glue their school photo to the top of the page.

Half of a plate, pops out and appears to balance on their traced hand print, much like Sam balances a tray of green eggs and ham throughout the story.

They can label their plate or glue on the "thumbs up/thumbs down" icons, or "yum/yuk" emojis, which are included.

The plate, hand print and worksheet are then glued on a bright colored sheet of construction paper.

Completed projects make an interesting 3D-bulletin board.

Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.

As I look out my snowy window and listen to the forecast of more to come, I am longing for spring.
