Happy birthday Dr. Suess, from kindergarten

Kindergarteners looked at the life and art Dr. Suess. He was both an author and illustrator of 44 books. We read "Cat in the Hat" and carefully observed the cat. We identified shapes we could see--lots of ovals. And then following directions we drew the cat, step-by-step. We began with a a large oval and added shapes learned about overlapping shapes. We added texture to our cat by cross hatching or adding short little texture lines just like Dr. Suess.
