Eastern Suffolk BOCES students celebrated Dr. Seuss’ Birthday with a new twist to the Cat in the Hat’s idea of green eggs and ham.
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.
“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.
