Speech Teacher Mary Kate Henry and Art Teacher Darlene Siracusano at the Eastern Suffolk BOCES included site at Sherwood Elementary School collaborated on ideas and came up a sweet treat that resembled green eggs and could easily be made by the students in the classroom.

A student adds rainbow sprinkles to the green eggs.   A student stirs the green food coloriing into the vanilla pudding.   A male student  added rainbow sprinkles to his green eggs.

“We added green food coloring to vanilla pudding and shaped it to look like a fried egg then we placed a cookie in the center and that looked like the yoke of the egg,” said Henry. The students pretended to salt and pepper their green eggs with rainbow colored sprinkles.

Students had to read the label of the pudding packet, accurately measure the ingredients so the pudding would have the proper consistency, and take turns stirring the ingredients. Then they gathered around a table, enjoyed the sweet treat, and practiced their socialization skills.
