Celebrating Reading

This past week my school had special activities for Read Across America Day. Due to the crazy winter weather, ice forced us to delay some of our activities. Students read and listened to 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins. Then they created their own version of a Suessy hat.

Some students listened to if I Ran the Zoo and created their own critter for the "McBrown Zoo".

They're hard to read but my second graders created a Zoozy Floozy and a Heartsie Tartsie. I drew a weird shape for the body and the students took turns adding features to create a class creature for our school zoo.

After telling our 8th graders the history behind Green Eggs and Ham, she read it then challenged them to find the 50 words.

We had special snacks in the cafeteria. Don't rat us out! It wasn't on the approved school menu. Don't even get me started about our school lunches. The students loved them.

We had lots of special readers during the week Miss Greene County, County Commissioners, Director of Schools, our State Representative, and our favorite Judge.

Don't forget to link up with Primary Chalkboard with ways you celebrated Dr. Seuss and Read Across America in your classroom.

Happy Reading!!!
