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.
