"The Cat in the Hat should not be here at all!"
This book is all about Dr. Seuss' most famous character The Cat in the Hat!
The children enjoyed listening to this rhythmic story during story time under the Truffula trees.
The Cat in the Hat is a stranger who visits two children who were having a really dreary day. He attempts to entertain the children by doing crazy things and ends up making a huge mess. All the while the fish in the bowl is protesting, telling the children that their mother would NOT like the Cat in the Hat in the house while she is out. When mother arrives the cat quickly cleans his mess and disappears but the children wonder should they tell their mother that the cat was there?
After the story I asked the children if they should let strangers in the house..."NO!!" Then I asked each of them "Would you tell your mother that the cat was there?" Most of them said yes...a few said no. Then one little girl said "If you don't tell mommy you will get in MORE trouble!" lol :)...you HAVE to love kids!
We then did a simple rhyming exercise. The children wrote 5 words that rhyme on a hat and coulred it. At craft time we made the cat in the hat!
You have to wait until Friday to see their Christmas with Dr. Seuss book but here is a peak at their craft and mine :).
