Like I said before, Dr. Seuss’s Birthday Bash made for a very busy week! But it was also so much fun! Here are a few fun activities we did as a school. I’ll be back later this week to talk about a few library centers and activities I did with the kids to celebrate.
This was the first time I’ve done a Dr. Seuss birthday celebration. I had a wonderful literacy aide who co-planned and came up with some of the activities we did as a school, such as red, white, and black day. It’s much easier when you have someone to help coordinate multiple activities!
Overall the week went very well. The only thing I would do differently would be to start preparing earlier next year. The week snuck up on me and it would have been great to have a more coordinated guest/mystery reader program set up in advance. Also, copying 500+ student hats plus all those for our staff and writing names on them was very time consuming! I waited until the week before to do all of the hats and wouldn’t have finished them if it weren’t for a parent volunteer, 4th grade helpers, and an aide!
What are some fun school-wide activities you do in your school to celebrate Read Across America or Dr. Seuss’s Birthday?
