A little more Seuss

No, I won’t be writing any more poems…I just have a few more fun pictures to post of our fun Dr. Seuss Wacky Week!!


I painted this “photo booth” after seeing the idea on Pinterest. It was a total hoot to make and to take pictures of the kids “being” Thing 1 & Thing 2. Maybe next week I’ll get some photos of us teachers…



We also created these self-portraits and used Cat in the Hat stickers a mom donated to put their names on the bows. These turned out so cute! Next year the teacher plans to do these and put them on the bulletin board in the hall with the “Today you are You, that is truer than True. There is no one alive that is You-er than You” Dr. Seuss quote. Since this was the first year making them, we weren’t sure how it would go, but we LOVE them!!



I absolutely ADORE this one! It reminds me of a little old lady…drawn by a six-year old boy!



These Thing 1 & Thing 2 cupcakes started out super cute…but melted overnight. Note to self…cotton candy does not last…


No problem, we just added more cotton candy later…though it didn’t work as well because the frosting was no longer very sticky…but you know what? Kindergarteners don’t care. They all think it was amazing and one even remarked, “This is the best day ever!”



It was green eggs and ham day! And we had actual green eggs! From green chickens!

No, not really. I was just checking to see if you were reading the words or just looking at the pictures.

Thanks, Cackleberry Farm, for loaning us green eggs! The kids loved it!!



And we had green jello eggs. These were a huge hit!



And of course we made green scrambled eggs. And thankfully we remembered before adding food coloring that scrambled eggs are yellow and therefore we should add blue food coloring! Blue & yellow make green. Aha!



We ended our day cheering on the two local high school basketball teams who both won the state championship last weekend. Our school in 1A and the other in 2A. Whenever there’s a state championship in town, the fire trucks give the winning team a ride through town. This was a great community building event – to have both schools win and celebrate together!



We’re Number One!

I don’t know about those kids, but I’m exhausted after such a day, and I’m just the aide! (I worked extra hours to help out with all these fun events). Good thing I have tomorrow off – the poor teacher better get to bed on time tonight.
