Students at Beech Hill Elementary were in for a special treat when they got to hear Dr. Seuss stories read to them and eat green eggs and ham for breakfast on March 2. That day wouldÃve been SeussÃs birthday, and itÃs been turned into Read Across America day in his honor by the National Education Association to boost studentsÃ enthusiasm for reading.
Megan SeitzÃs 4k class was one of several Beech Hill classes with students dressed in red and white striped Ã¬The Cat In The HatÃ® hats eating the breakfast made famous by one of SeussÃs most loved books.
Seitz, who made green eggs, ham and grits that day, read Seuss books the week before and all that week, including Ã¬Green Eggs and Ham,Ã® Ã¬Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?Ã® Ã¬The Cat In The Hat,Ã® Ã¬Fox In Socks,Ã® and Ã¬One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.Ã®
Ã¬They love the rhymes,Ã® Seitz said.
Most of her students appeared to enjoy the green eggs, ham and grits, but a few seemed apprehensive about eating food that looks like itÃs from cartoons.
