Dr. Seuss Celebration Night

A week ago my elementary building kicked off Dr. Seuss Reading Month with a Literacy Night.  We had games, prizes and guest readers.  Here are a few pics of the activities of this night.
Our former kindergarten teachers, Jodie and Marsha,  as readers Thing 1 and Thing 2.  Aren't they festive?'

Our high school mascot The Colt reading to children.

Out staff taking time out from the festivities for a photo op.

This is our local volunteer fireman in our community , Larry Foster Goodrich who also happens to be one of our school board members.  Larry loves to help and volunteer all the time.

This is a "Hungry Caterpillar" that our librarian Lisa Watson created.  She punched out circles on the Ellison Die-Cut and gave each class a set of circles.  Each student that gets a 100% on their AR test writes their name and the book title on the circle and take it to the library to attach to the caterpillar.  The goal is to have the caterpillar stretched around the entire library by the end of the month!  She already has 560 book titles up!! Kids are amped up!

The big prize for the night was a bike that was housed in our school showcase all week.  Kids goggled over it and were overheard saying, "that's the bike I'm gonna win".  Here is our principal Susan Caswell and a National Honor Student announcing the winner. A big shout out to the National Honor Society Students who primarily put this celebration together for our students!  Bravo!

Thanks for stopping by hope you got some ideas for Dr. Seuss month!  I'd love to hear some of your ideas of what you're doing to celebrate!



You certainly captured the FeStIvE SpIrIt of the celebration! What great and creative ideas for teachers everywhere...and fantastically meaningful memories for the kiddos :) :) M& J @

It's great seeing community members in the classroom reading to students. It makes reading more important because it's not just something you're supposed to do in school.
