The Cat in the Hat knows a lot about that!

Well Dr. Seuss's birthday has come and gone and we had fun celebrating! We spent the whole week learning and celebrating Dr. Seuss's books. First we learned about the man Dr. Seuss and what his books look like. Then later in the week, along with dress up days, we made Oobleck, tried green eggs and ham, and made "at cat in the hat" hats. That's just a few things we did to celebrate this week.

    Playing with Oobleck! This is a must for Read Across America week. Its just corn starch, water and green food coloring.

 Trying green eggs and ham in our "At cat in the hat" hats! We loved it!

My new seuss-tastic addition to our reading center! truffala trees! Just love pinterest!

Once Dr. Seuss week was over, we moved on to transportation. Our reading unit is all about transportation so this was perfect! We studied  different kinds of transportation and where they travel. At the end of the week, we got to spend the whole day doing hands on activities with transportation.

We got to see lots of different types of transportation from our community. Since we live close to lake Guntersville, one of my moms brought her jet skis for us to see! Thanks Mrs. Dendy!

Mrs. Dendy  even brought the cool motorcycle! Doesn't Jaxon look like one cool dude! Love it!

We also got to spend some time that day just playing with different types of transportation toys. Of course, my boys loved this!

 Is this not just too cute! So excited about some cars!
 My sweet boys playing together.
Just too much fun!
One of the coolest things I got to do on transportation day, was use a bucket truck! Look at those little ants down there. That's my kids! Wow! We were high!

We ended the day with  learning about a hot air balloon. We got to actually climb inside the balloon part. It was so cool, but this time, we were worn out!
Great things are happening at BSLK! We are having so much fun, but first grade is just right around the corner. So excited for them to grow, but sad to see them go! On to more fun this week in kindergarten! Lots more to learn before May!
