Thing 1 and Thing 2

We finally finished our week long study on Dr. Seuss.  This project focused on Thing 1 and Thing 2.

I started by reading a weekly reader on Dr. Seuss.  It was great because we made a list of all of the Dr. Seuss books that we read in class, and listed our favorites.

I read aloud The Cat and the Hat to the students.  At the end of the book, the reader is asked if we would tell our mom about all of the wild things that happened in the house that day.  This created a good "teachable moment" in which we could talk about the importance of telling the truth.

My aide, hand drew a drawing of Thing 1 and Thing 2 and we added lines to create a writing assignment.  I asked the students to write about what happened in the house when Thing 1 and Thing 2 came in. We brainstormed our ideas of what our sentences could be about.  I wrote the words: Thing 1 and Thing 2 on the board, and the students had to use inventive spelling to write the rest of the words in their sentences.

 "Thing 1 and Thing 2 are flying kites and braking stuff even making mom's dress dirty."

 "Thing 1 and Thing 2 are flying kites in the house!"

"Thing 1 and Thing 2 are messing up the house with the kites!"

We have 5th grade Reading Buddies once a week.  Normally, our buddies come into the class for 30 minuets and are paired with one of my kinders.  This week, we had a special project and the buddies helped us make a Thing 1 and Thing 2 craft.  Each pair of buddies could decide if where going to make a Thing 1 or Thing 2.  They would each take home one of them, but together they would be a pair!  They loved working with their buddies on this craft!

  5. noorani qaida page 10 saw your blog and want to say that, Thing 1 and Thing 2 are two dwarf-shaped creatures with messy light blue hair, completely white skin, and red jumpsuits. They are identical in appearance, except for the circular label on the chest of the suit, which is labeled "1st" and "2nd" to distinguish them.
