Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Suess is another classic book that has been used in classrooms for a very long time. This story is about not liking green eggs and ham and in the end he realizes that he does like them, he just needed to try them. This is a great book to read to students because it shows them that you need to try something before you say you do not like something. Children will also love the repetition that is in this book as well as the fun characters! If I were to use this book in my classroom I think I could go different ways, I could see myself doing a character education lesson for younger grades where they have to come up with something they do not think they like but want to try. I could also see myself doing this with a lesson on sequencing because each page Dr. Suess adds another thing and I think it would be helpful for students to have that to learn sequencing.
