Wacky Wednesday: Students can wear wacky socks to school. At the end of the day, we will relax with our shoes off and read Dr. Seuss books. We will also be make a Horton puppet. I will need the students to bring in 1 pair of (clean) socks.

Theodore Thursday with Third Grade: We will learn about Theodor Seuss Geisel and buddy read with the 3rd grade class.

Fun Friday: We will have a fun day and make oobleck. Oobleck is a non-newtonian fluid. That is, it acts like a liquid when being poured, but like a solid when a force is acting on it. You can grab it and then it will ooze out of your hands. Oobleck gets its name from the Dr. Seuss book Bartholomew and the Oobleck where a gooey green substance, Oobleck, fell from the sky and wreaked havoc in the kingdom.
