Green Eggs and Ham

Green Eggs and Ham Retelling

B’s favorite Dr. Seuss book right now is Green Eggs and Ham! Although, the message of the story hasn’t sunk in yet because he won’t try new foods.

Happy Birthday, Dr Seuss!

  1. I googled Green Eggs and Ham images, printed them, and taped them to index cards (pictured above) so he could retell the story.
  2. I put magnets on the back to make it more appealing.
  3. After reading the book we put the magnets in order together.

This Green Eggs and Ham video is also a big hit with B. It is so fun to watch the story that we’ve read “come to life”!

    Sometimes we have this wonderful idea and our kids never like it. That can be so frustrating. If it helps any, mine are never all that fond of activities like this either.

    Thanks for the link to the video. We’re reading Green eggs and ham today and making green iced egg sugar cookies since my daughter, like your son, will not try new things so real green eggs was out!

    Gotta love Dr. Suess for writing such clever books for children. We had fun reading his books today- even our 2 month year old got in on the celebration today. Take a peek at him reading over on my blog. 🙂

    Take Care!
