My Many Colored Days

Today we read My Many Colored Days by Dr. Seuss. Oh how I love this book! I can totally relate to his many colored days! The first graders shared some their colored days:
Fiona: On my purple day I am a dog and I bark! Rrrrrrruff!
Maggie P: On my pink day I am a horse and I will run around.
Maggie M: On my green day I am a rabbit hopping.
Lucas: On my orange day I am a turtle swimming in the ocean.
Zachery: On my brown day I am a tarantula and I crawl up and down in my burrow.
Sam: On my green day I am a spider in its tank, crawling.
Madison: On my red day I am unicorn flying in the sky.
Ayla: On my black day I am a wolf howling at the moon.
Evie: On my white sparkly day I am a Pegasus galloping around.
Nylaina: On my blue day I am Pegasus who flaps her wings.
