"AT Word" Writing and Guessing My Age...

We painted hats for "Dr. Seuss Week" and I was trying to find a way to use them for writing.  Last year, I used them in math (it didn't works so well), so I thought I would switch it to language arts.  We decided to write sentences on them!  Take a look...


After reading "The Cat in the Hat" we wrote words on the board that rhymed with "at."

 
The students used that list to write three sentences using those words.  They wrote them in every other stripe on the hat, and we painted the stripes without sentences.
 

 

 



Today is also my birthday...the kids got to try and guess my age!  Lets just say I am somewhere between Tyson and Elle! ;)
