DR. SEUSS DAY

Like many other schools who are doing the Read Across America today, we joined in on the Dr. Seuss fun.

There was plenty of Dr. Seuss reading, watching a short animated bit about Dr. Seuss on Brain Pop Jr., and some short animated stories watching. Though judging by the girls' excitement, I say their favorite part was getting to eat green eggs and SPAM for lunch! And I threw in some green fried rice for fun.

Okay, so after all the healthy eating I talked about yesterday and eating fresher foods, well, I had to break it a bit and give them dyed green spam for lunch. It is processed to the max, but it did the job for today's activity!

Are you doing anything to celebrate reading today?

  1. how fun!! I was reminded of your cute little ones when I came across this children's music group the Polkadots (their moms from New Zealand) I'm sure your girls would love to dance and sing with them through their youtube channel! http://www.youtube.com/user/polkadotsnz

  3. How fun! We are going to do a read-a-thon at bedtime of all our favorite Seuss stories. We love Dr.Seuss. The Nursery for our boys looks like the inside of a Dr. Seuss book. Your girls are just too cute for words!

  8. Hehe how come you didn't want to use regular ham? Just cuz spam is notoriously gross. =P That is a fun activity. Glad they liked it!

  10. that's really cute. I remember when I was in 1st grade, my school made green eggs and ham for us all and itw as really fun. It was a Seuss day too. I've never had spam before though. Maybe one day, because I'm really curious. . .and always have been.
