The National Read Across America Day is a reading celebration throughout the nation that is celebrated each year on March 2nd, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Last week, and continuing through this week as part of National Read Across America Week, we will be reading a new Dr. Seuss book each day. Please refer to your child’s classroom calendar for the dress down days and what to wear during the week (especially for the Pre-K and Kindergarten classes).
Early Preschoolers and Preschoolers celebrated a “Cat in the Hat Day” last Wednesday with two Dr. Seuss Stations. In the first station, they listened to the read aloud “The Cat in the Hat” by Dr. Seuss and made tall silly hats! In the second station, students loved listening to another Dr. Seuss classic “Green Eggs and Ham” and afterwards made a green eggs and ham craft on a paper plate.
Pre-K and Kindergarten students listened to “I Am Not Going to Get Up Today” by Dr. Seuss and had a pajama day while making pillowcases out of textile markers. They also listened to “Oh the Thinks You Can Think”, a wonderful Dr. Seuss book that celebrates the imagination and encourages young readers to think about thinking! Pre-K and Kindergarteners will have their turn to celebrate “Cat in the Hat Day” this Monday with fun themes on what to wear to school for the entire week.
