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.
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.
As a transitional activity, to be done after students read the story, I designed a cute "Green Eggs and Ham" writing prompt.
Introduce the lesson with the graphing extension, which you can laminate and hang on the board.
Keep things simple for younger students, who simply fill in the blanks on their worksheet, then draw pictures of foods that they like and dislike.
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.
To add a bit of pizzazz and craftiness to their writing, students can also make the paper plate craft.
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.
I’ve included lime green, polka dot letters, which spell “Hungry For A Good Book?”
Simply print, laminate and trim, then hang the caption above your bulletin board or hallway display.
Today's featured FREEBIE is another Seuss-themed activity.
This craft goes along with "The Cat in the Hat".
Older students can make their own hat, while younger kiddos can help you make one hat together.
Completed projects look great on hallway lockers.

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.
