More Dr. Seuss Ideas

We are planning to celebrate reading and Dr. Seuss the whole week of Feb. 28 - March 4. As part of that celebration, we have decided to dress a certain way each day to go along with a theme from one of Dr. Seuss' books. We sent a letter home with the students Friday so that the parents would have a week to prepare. Here is the schedule:

Monday 2/28 - Green Eggs and Ham, wear something green
Tuesday 3/1 - Fox in Socks, wear silly socks
Wednesday 3/2 - Dr. Seuss's Birthday and Read Across America Day - The Cat in the Hat, wear black and white (we will be making striped hats)
Thursday 3/3 - The Eye Book, wear crazy glasses (we told the parents to have the children decorate an old pair of sunglasses)
Friday 3/4 - Dr. Seuss' Sleep Book and/or I'm Not Getting Up Today, wear pajamas

We have also scheduled a "mystery reader" for each day that week. 2 of our assistant principals have volunteered to come read to the class. We also have our ELL teacher coming to share a bilingual book one of the days that week. And, one of our PE coaches will come read to the class. The other "mystery reader" will be my sister, "Ms. Elizabeth". They love my sister because she came to our class and helped the students make Christmas ornaments for their parents and she came back for our Christmas party and painted their faces to make them look like reindeer. They will be so excited to see her!

How are you celebrating Dr. Seuss??
