Cupcake War

Today is Dr. Suess' birthday. We decided to have a birthday party today at school and celebrate. The kids had to earn the party by being good (somedays this is a big battle), and perform a Dr. Suess reader's theater for the Kindergarten and 1st graders. They earned it. So the 3 of us that teacher reading in 6th grade decided to up the anty and have a contest. We talked a little smack all week to each other and this is what we came up with. The challenge was the most creative: (Dr. Suess theme was not a criteria). We took the above tray to Linda our principal to judge.
My contribution was milkshake cupcakes.  Alas, I did not win...

 Kayla jumped into the competion last night.  Her idea was the Thing 1 and 2 cupcakes.
 Nicole did the Cat in the Hat cupcakes.  I love these, they are so cute.  She is super competitive too, and really wanted to win.  Too bad she didn't win either.
 Kristie "took the cake" with these Green Eggs and Ham cupcakes.  Although I didn't win I had a lot of fun.  It was a great day at school today.  Have a great weekend.


  1. Those green eggs and ham ones are pretty cute, but the Cat in the Hat ones were a close second.

    And yours look yummy with all that frothy icing!


  2. These are things..1 & 2...that make school fun for the kiddos. I'm sure as a teacher you wish they would remember how much work was done to teach them the basics but I'm sure they will remember Dr. Suess and how much fun the cupcake war was. They will remember the fun teachers who made it happen. You probably won't ever know the impact on those children lives that you have. You may never get the deserved "thanks" but I bet in the future when they read a Dr. Suess to their kiddos they will have a "think" moment and it will be of you. Thanks for the cupcakes Kayla brought Jack..they look yummy!

  3. I totally agree with Kathy. Great job, Mrs. Crawford!
