This week, Girlie has been learning about the letter E. Our theme was elephants. Math was the number eight and the concept empty. Science was about eggs. Social Studies looked at train engines. And because I LOVE Dr. Seuss, we of course HAD to read Green Eggs and Ham.
This is a classic Dr. Seuss book and one that I’ve read with all of my children. When we read it, we talked about how our family cooks eggs (boiled and scrambled), and whether or not we’d eat them “in a box or with a fox.”
So what do you think we had for dinner? That’s right…
I learned that food coloring makes scrambled eggs just a little longer to cook, that it takes a dozen eggs to make enough for our family, and that everyone (including Racer) tried and liked the green eggs. I didn’t want to mess with coloring the ham too.
Girlie had fun connecting the book with something in real life. Professor enjoyed the meal too – he even helped “stage” the picture. I hope this is a memory that we all have for a long time.
I need some new ideas for book/meal combos. Anyone have one that you’ve made and will share with us?
