This classic Dr. Seuss story can open up discussions about trust, responsibility, social expectations, and honesty. Two children, Sally and Sam, are home alone and having a very dreary day. Suddenly, they’re graced with a surprise visit from a stranger, the Cat.
Our Volunteer Grandparent shared the story with her assigned classroom and then led the students in drawing portraits of the cat. After the portraits were drawn, students then completed the pictures by using oil pastels.
