Deasy students in Jennifer Cleary’s and Christine Maddaloni’s kindergarten classes studied Dr. Seuss through a variety of monthlong activities based on the author’s books.

Each class read multiple stories by Dr. Seuss, including “Bartholomew and Oobleck,” which led to students creating the substance as part of a science experiment with their teachers.

“We predicted what would happen if they rolled it or squeezed it,” Cleary said. “The students had a lot of fun.”

In addition to the experiment, the children read a biography on Dr. Seuss, researched the author online and examined his illustrations. They also sorted rhyming words, completed rhyming puzzles, and enjoyed green eggs and ham as a culminating activity.
