Kindergarten students wore Grinch green clothing and donned hats that said, “My heart grew three sizes today,” during Brookhaven Elementary School’s annual Grinch Day. Celebrating Dr. Seuss’ cherished character from “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” the day’s activities were an opportunity for students to spread kindness, just like the Whos in Whoville as they converted the Grinch one Christmas.
The classes rotated throughout the morning with each classroom set up with various centers that supported English language arts, math and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) activities. The students read “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” in Spanish, crafted Grinch faces out of construction paper, made I Choose to be Kind ornaments, labeled the Grinch with vocabulary words, tested their pattern skills with the Out Run the Grinch game, constructed sleighs out of Playdough, rolled the dice to count the number of water beads to fill the Grinch’s heart and more. But their favorite activity of the day, by far, was to settle on the carpet to hear the celebrated story about how the Grinch adopted the holiday spirit of kindness.
