In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2nd and Read Across America, Pre-Kindergarten Students at EverGreen Elementary had a fantastic week of whimsical reading activities as they enjoyed the author’s unique rhyming and imaginative characters! After listening to the story, The Cat in the Hat, students created their very own edible hats! Take a close look. Can you guess what they used for their creations? Stacking healthy fruit was their challenge! Pre-K students used kiwi for the base. Then they created a striped pattern with slices of strawberry, banana, strawberry, banana, and finally a strawberry slice to top it off!   Yum!
