Book: Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss

Learning Focus: 

Learning Bonus: Cooking

Target Audience: Pre-K-2nd Grade

Review: Green Eggs and Ham is a CLASSIC story that no child’s bookcase should be without. (It’s actually #22 on my 100 Picture Books You  MUST Read To Your Child list!) Repetition, rhyme, and silliness combine to help emergent readers gain confidence in their ability.

Green Eggs and Ham

During the Story:

*ALWAYS read the story one time through strictly for enjoyment purposes. Relish the illustrations together. Celebrate the story! Reading isn’t just educational – it’s FUN!

Let’s Cook:

To make green eggs and ham, you will need: greeneggsandham

  • 12 eggs
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 drops blue food coloring
  • ham

I’ve been serving up green eggs since my days as a kindergarten teacher, when I’d make this fun dish with my students. This meal is the perfect way to celebrate one of Dr. Seuss’s best-loved stories.

To prepare:

Crack the eggs into a large bowl, and season with salt and pepper. Add in can of cream of chicken soup. Whisk thoroughly. Add 6 drops of blue food coloring. Mix well.

Pour eggs into a large non-stick skillet. Cook over medium heat. Gently stir the eggs, working to lift the cooked portions.  Gently stir and lift until the eggs are thoroughly cooked but still moist. These will be fluffy,full of flavor, and reminiscent of the classic Seuss tale.

I serve my green eggs with a slice of ham. I do so like green eggs and ham. =)

Extended Learning Opportunities:

Alphabet Eggs – Using plastic Easter eggs (found on clearance after Easter for super cheap!), help your child learn to match the upper and lowercase letters. While the eggs are snapped together, write the capital letter on the top half of the egg, and the lower case letter on the bottom half of the egg. Un-snap the eggs and help your child find the matches. Work with him/her to connect the correct upper and lowercase letters together. Learning both the upper and lowercase formation of each letter at the same time helps your child progress and deepens their understanding of the letters. This is a quick and easy activity that would be fun to do after enjoying these tasty green eggs.
