We've been enjoying Dr. Seuss all week! We've had lots of great discussions on his use of nonsense words and rhyme. I've read several of his books this week, and the kids are starting to realize that even though most of his stories are made of silly words, silly characters and silly situations, he has some real things to say in his stories.
Today we read The Lorax. It's one of my favorites, and it has something important to tell us.
Check out their structures! Don't you just love kids creating with blocks?
