Green Eggs and Ham- Read.Explore.Learn


This year I decided to focus on the book Green Eggs and Ham  for Dr. Seuss’ Birthday. I love the rhymes and the message of this book. No matter what Sam says about trying new foods he ends up eating this new food combination. He not only tries it, but he like it.

Thankfully JDaniel loves to try new things! Well, most of the time he likes to try new things.

What did we do to explore this Green Eggs and Ham?

Green Eggs and a Fancy Pancake

I made JDaniel a special hat shaped pancake and placed bacon and whipped cream on top of it.  He loved it. The pancake tasted like a birthday cake I was  told. I think it was the vanilla flavoring that I added to the pancake batter that made it taste that way. It also may have been the dash of sugar that I added to the pancake mix.

I also made him a small cup of green scrambled eggs. He turned his nose up to them and won’t even try them. That really surprised me. He is usually into scrambled eggs. I made a similar lunch for my husband. (He was home dealing with a heating issue on the day I made them.) He ate everything and went back for more eggs.

 Tic Tac Toe Game

JDaniel loves to play tic tac toe on the iPad so, I made him a Green Eggs and Ham versions of the the game. I guess it should be called Green Eggs and Bacon. Bacon strips made a better  “x” than ham slices would so, I decided to make bacon.

He has gotten really good at the game by playing it on the game iPag application  Bugs and Buttons. I was the green eggs when we played and I don’t think I won once. Maybe it was because I left JDaniel go first.  Maybe it is because he went to the center space everytime.

    The tic tac toe with the bacon and eggs is adorable. My oldest LOVES this book, LOVES! We made green eggs too, although I used pureed spinach and let him mix it into the eggs. I think getting him involved made him less prone to snub it.

    I love the tic-tac-toe game!

    We had green eggs and ham for dinner the other night — my preschool son insisted upon it. Kids are so funny!

    We had fun with a Dr. Seuss book this morning; I’ll link it up once the post is written!

    What a fun breakfast! That game is a great idea and my kids would think it was so funny! I’ll have to try that for them.
