To celebrate Read Across America and the birthday of Dr. Seuss at North LaFayette Elementary, students and staff turned the whole school into Seussville.
To promote reading, everyone dropped everything to read for 15 minutes, and students wrote a story titled If I Ran the School. Principal Kim Cardwell highlighted the best from each grade level each morning during announcements. Special guests were invited to read Dr. Seuss stories on Friday, March 3.
Gilbert Elementary celebrated Dr. Seusss birthday with special guest readers and interactive stations for projects pertaining to Dr. Seuss stories.
Students learned about the author and read the stories before they made a sticky substance called Gilbert goop for Bartholomew and the Ooblek and foamy bookmarks for Theres a Wocket in my Pocket. They sang funny songs after The Diffendoofer Song and had popcorn with a Dr. Seuss video. The day ended with an assembly to choose the students best dressed as Dr. Seuss characters, who received a goldfish in a bowl for performing in a dance routine.
Rock Spring Elementary enjoyed pajama day, wearing hats and special activities for Dr. Seusss birthday and Read Across America Week.
