St. Mary Chardon’s preschoolers and Kindergarten students have been stacking apples, wearing silly socks and costumes and investigating all things Seuss related during their celebration of the great children’s author.
According to Holiday’s Calendar, Dr. Seuss Day is held annually on March 2nd. It is a holiday that celebrates the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel – otherwise known by the pen name by which he authored children’s books: Dr. Seuss. During the 1990s, the National Education Association advocated for a day to celebrate reading all over the United States. In 1998, it started Read Across America and decided to hold it on the same day as Dr. Seuss’ birthday.
On Dr. Seuss Day it is customary to read a favorite book with your child. It could be one of Dr. Seuss’s books or it could be another children’s book author. The whole point of the day is to engage children in reading and to get them to read on a regular basis.
St. Mary Chardon’s littlest students loved getting to hear the great work of Dr. Seuss and bring it to life in their classrooms with learning fun!
