Read Across America Week - Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

It's Read Across America Week and on Thursday is Dr. Seuss' birthday! We are celebrating with books, decorations, and clothes!

I had to get in on the action! I wore it for the first 10 minutes of each period and then put it on the SMARTboard! Form and function!

My SMARTboard is Seuss-ified! The display books are all the Dr. Seuss books we have available, it is slowly emptying! 

We had 2 activities that connected to Library Skills:

Help students recognize and read a call number with this activity: 

This is a quick activity I made to help us learn a little bit more about Dr. Seuss and practice finding informational text features - headings, captions, illustrations, and photographs (and bonus: interesting facts). Try it out!

I also made a Reading Response sheet for a read aloud of And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street by Dr. Seuss.  Have students share their creativity, and write and illustrate their own creative writing! Add your own street, for a personalized touch!

Then, I couldn't help it, I used my Silhouette Cameo 
to make a onesie for my daughter and a tank top for me! 

Can't wait for Thursday to wear our adorable outfits!
