 Mrs. Colella’s first grade class held a Grinch party on Friday, December 8th. Both Mrs. Colella and the students were given the opportunity answer some questions. Most people were dressed for the occasion, going as Grinches and Cindy-Lou Whos. After Dr. Seuss published How The Grinch Stole Christmas, the Grinch became a traditional Christmas icon. Seeing that the Grinch teaches very valuable life lessons, Mrs. Colella has a Grinch party every year to teach the kids about the Grinch.


Q: Why do you have a Grinch party?

A: To teach the kids how the Grinch goes from bad to good and how he didn’t ruin Christmas, even though he took all the Who’s toys and food. This is meant to teach the kids that Christmas isn’t all about presents.


Q: What is going to happen in the Grinch party?

A: We are going to pin the heart on the Grinch, we are going to make Who pudding, which is pudding with green dye, we will make Grinch dust,which is dust made from oatmeal, green sprinkles, and green sparkles, and after the party, we will watch the movie How The Grinch Stole Christmas.


Q: Why is it important to teach the kids about the Grinch?

A: The point of teaching the kids about the Grinch is to teach them that Christmas isn’t all about gifts, and it is  about spending time with family and friends.


Besides asking Mrs. Colella questions, we gave the kids a chance to guess some things and answer a few questions.


Q:How long has Mrs. Colella been having a Grinch party?

Guesses: 14 years, 8 years, 100 years, 7 years, 5 years, 20 years, 12 years, 0 years, 6 years, 10 years, and two guesses of  0 years. 

Answer: Mrs. Colella has been having a party for 6 years!


Q:What is your favorite part about the movie The Grinch Who Stole Christmas?

A: The Grinch turns nice, his heart grows three sizes, and the scene where he cuts down a tree with a chainsaw and the tree falls through the roof. Out of the kids surveyed, about 1/4 of the kids liked the scene when the Grinch had a chainsaw.




Keep calm and love the Grinch!
