In celebration of Dr. Seuss’s 112th birthday, Betsy Ross first graders had Seuss Day. Many family members joined them to help run a series of Dr. Seuss themed activities. Different stations included making oobleck, contraction sorts, rhyming cat hats, math story problems solved with goldfish, real word/Seuss word sorts, and more. Thank you to the family volunteers who helped to make this day possible. The first graders would celebrate Seuss here or there, they would celebrate him anywhere!
March 2, Dr. Seuss’s birthday, is also Read Across America Day. In the primary grades, we love Dr. Seuss and his many children’s books. They provide rhyme, rhythm, alliteration, and lend themselves to phonemic awareness activities that build beginning readers’ listening and reading skills. Most importantly, children love them, and learn to love reading with them. Thanks, Dr. Seuss!
