Like I said before, Dr. Seuss's Birthday Bash made for a very busy week! But it was also so much...
Dr. Seuss's Birthday Bash, Part 2
Here are some of the things I did during library classes to celebrate our Dr. Seuss's Birthday Bash:
I made a bulletin board to showcase students' work from the week:
They also wrote favorite books on the Truffula trees and drew their favorite characters to add to the bulletin board.
I set up a Wacky Words Center so they could create their own words like Dr. Seuss often did:
Here are two of my favorite wacky words:
Fifth graders were responsible for creating advertisements for Dr. Seuss's Birthday Bash and did a fantastic job:
I used some of my regular centers during the week but Seuss-ified them:
I also have a blog for students. Every week, I post a "Guess the Word Cloud" and of course did a Dr. Seuss cloud. (Sidenote: if you haven't checked out Tagxedo, you should!)
My favorite activity of the week was the We LOVE Reading photo booth. I put together a basket of Dr. Suess props and covered my
SmartBoard with a background. Students had to find their favorite book or Dr. Seuss book to use in the photo booth. If I didn't have the book in the library, they wrote the title on a small whiteboard. They had such a good time! I'm waiting for the printed pictures to come from Snapfish but as soon as I get them, I will be making a big display of readers and their favorite books!
Note to self - next time, make the background lower for my shorter readers :)
