Wacky Wednesday!

This week, we celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday.  We read many stories, wrote, made hats, and of course had to celebrate with a Wacky Wednesday!  We kicked off the day with some imaginative couture!  Six ponytails, three braids, six barrettes, mismatched shoes, inside-out pants, capes, tie-dye, space pants, beads, ties, pajamas--even one friend dressed in a first grade uniform!

We read Dr. Seuss books during Readers' Workshop... what an AMAZING job everyone did reading!   We made a class book based on Green Eggs and Ham, and of course had to top it off with a yummy Cat in the Hat snack.
Our short week was a whirlwind, but it was lots of fun--we spent time rhyming, reading, writing and being silly.  This week is actually named "Read Across America" week by the National Education Association, in conjunction with Dr. Seuss' birthday, to promote reading and literacy nationwide.    For more resources featuring Dr. Seuss and Read Across America, check out Seussville, the NEA's  Read Across America, or for messy fun make some Oobleck from Dr. Seuss' Bartholomew and the Oobleck.  Keep rhyming, reading and having fun!
