Green Eggs and Ham


This week we are reviewing the book Green Eggs & Ham by Dr. Seuss.  This is a classic book that most people have read.  This book is such a fun read for kids of any age.  This book includes opportunities for reading, rhyming, listening, and remembering the process of the story each time you read.  The book, I feel, portrays a great message – do not be afraid to try new things.  It has been a great lesson for my 4 year old who is a picky eater.  I knew I wanted to make green eggs and ham after reading this book.  I let Little Chef K help me stir the eggs and add the green food coloring.  I really didn’t think he would even try them, but he ended up eating them all.


Next I wanted a fun activity for Little Chef K.  We found some Green Easter eggs downstairs, and some “puffies” from my craft room.  I started with the numbers 1 – 10.  Little Chef chose an egg and filled it with the correct number of pieces of “ham”.  Those numbers were pretty easy, so I added a “1” to the numbers and we worked on 11 – 20.  This got even more exciting.  As the numbers got bigger, were we able to fill the egg and have them stay shut?  You need to give it a try and see.IMG_0301

The third day of this book we matched the words that rhymed from the book.  For your older chefs you can add rhyming words, but for Little Chef K it was perfect.IMG_0309

We had a great time with the book Green Eggs and Ham.  If you have any fun activities, or treats, that you have done with this book please link them on Thursday so we can all enjoy!green eggs background
