What is Dr Seuss Day?

Dr Seuss Day is March 2nd, a holiday where we honor the legacy of Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel). His whimsical tales, silly rhymes, and colorful characters are beloved by children all over the world. For generations, Dr. Seuss has captivated children and helped parents and teachers instill a love of reading.

Each year, we have an opportunity to commemorate his birthday and his impact on children’s literature. Celebrating with my students is one of my favorite ways to expose them to the magical worlds of his stories and introduce them to my favorite characters: Horton, the Lorax, the Cat in the Hat, and Sam I Am. 

Dr. Seuss’s narratives help children build critical literacy skills and impart valuable life lessons on friendship, personal growth, and compassion. Integrating his books into your lesson plans is a unique opportunity to create an interactive experience that will help your little learners build critical thinking skills, empathy, and reading proficiency. Plus, celebrating Dr Seuss Day is a lot of fun!

More Green Eggs and Ham Activity Ideas

Green Eggs and Ham is such a fun book that easily pairs up with lots of fun and educational activities at home and in the classroom! Check out some of my favorites below:

Green Eggs Art Project

You’ll need white glue, shaving cream, white cardstock, and green pom poms for this art project. Mix the glue and shaving cream to make fluffy egg whites. Then, apply to egg shapes cut from white cardstock.

Teachers can prep the cardstock egg shapes before the activity or let kids practice scissor skills by creating their own egg shapes. Then, glue a green pom pom to the center to create the yolk. Voila, green eggs for storytime!

Sensory Play with Green Eggs and Ham

Sensory play is so much fun! Plus, there are all kinds of benefits for little learners. Sensory activities help children understand cause and effect, and enhance the brain-body connection. 

For Dr Seuss Day, set up a Green Eggs and Ham Sensory Bin with green rice or pasta (made with food coloring). Add green plastic eggs and pink pom poms (ham). Children can explore a variety of textures and colors as they play with this sensory bin. 

Green Eggs and Ham Rhyming Game

You can practice rhyming with this fun Dr. Seuss theme too! Provide kids with pictures or cards featuring rhyming words and have kids match them up. It’s an excellent way to build phonemic awareness and develop a stronger vocabulary with your little learners.
