Green Eggs and Ham

Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss

This is a great Dr. Seuss book about Sam who absolutely does not like green eggs and ham. The book goes on to describe how Sam would never eat green eggs and ham, no matter the circumstances. At the end of the story, Sam is convinced to try the green eggs and ham, and finds that he actually likes them.

 

This book would be great for teaching students about rhyming words. The teacher could copy one of the pages and have students identify rhymes by highlighting the words. Older or more advanced students could write their own rhyming poems about a food that they do not like.
