Dr. Seuss turns 50 simple words into magic in this time-honored classic. Sam-I-am won’t give up. He keeps trying to get the grumpy grown-up in the story to taste green eggs and ham. No matter how Sam-I-am presents the green eggs and ham (in a box, with a fox, in the rain, on a train), he just refuses to try them. Finally, Sam-I-am’s persistence pays off. A crowd of open-mouthed onlookers watch in suspense as the old grouch takes a bite. The old sourpuss’s face is all smiles as he gratefully acknowledges, “I do so like green eggs and ham. Thank you, thank you, Sam-I-am!”
Activity—Use 16 foam eggs of different sizes for activities such as sequencing them in order according to size, making designs with them, and a variety of math activities.
