Mrs. Kara Passow’s Kindergarten class, dressed as their favorite Seuss Character played host to the St. Mary Pre-Kindergarten students during their recent celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Kindergarten students busied themselves running interactive learning Seuss centers for their younger friends and having fun at the same time. Learning stations included Green Eggs and Ham tic-tac-toe, stacking apples on top, and creating hats for Cat in the Hat. The Pre-K students enjoyed spending time with their older friends and acting out some of their favorite Dr. Seuss books. The Kindergarten did their own science experiment as well, working on investigating states of matter. The students took a liquid and mixed it with Jell-O to see the outcome. Students predicted that when the liquid cooled it would become a solid. They were not only correct, but also got to enjoy the special treat when they were done.
Each March schools across the country celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the legacy he created across our reading curriculum. Better known to most readers as Dr. Seuss, Dr. Theodor Geisel was born over 100 years ago. The NEA marks his birthday with Read Across America, the largest reading event in the United States, by celebrating with read-aloud, read-along, and reading marathon activities.
Early childhood students look forward to wearing crazy socks and hats, dressing as their favorite characters and embracing the zany books that Dr. Seuss gifted to our very young readers.
