How the Grinch Stole Christmas inspired pictures! After reading the book and having a great discussion about the Grinch and why Christmas can't be stolen (we used our knowledge of the Nativity from yesterday), we closely examined the illustrations. How did Dr. Suess illustate the book? What colors did he use? Are there different shades of red? What is an "accent"?
Jill did a great demonstration of how she would draw a Grinch inspired picture of a Christmas tree and then the kids got to work.
animated version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Afterwards, there was a lively discussion comparing and contrasting the book and movie versions.
