Read Across America Week Linky

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! In celebrating his birthday the kinder team at my school had a Sprit Week. After searching pins and blogs and a little bit of my own creativity this is what our Spirit Week looked like:

Monday –Mustache Monday-Wear Orange
Tuesday-Top Hat Tuesday-Wear Black & White
Wednesday-Wacky Wednesday-Wear Silly Socks
Thursday- Thing 1 & Thing 2 Thursday-Wear Silly Socks
Friday-Funny Food Friday-Wear Green

I’m so sad that I totally forgot to take pictures on Monday. I’ve often said that this is my favorite day of the week because the day just flies by! I guess this is true of Monday cause I spaced it with all the excitement! I found a great video on YouTube of the Lorax. My students were engaged the whole 17 minutes! It also gave me time to pass out all the construction paper each student needed to make the Lorax Mustache headband (hence the name of our spirit day)!

We asked our Kinder Kids to wear Black and White so they could be like the Cat in the Hat’s fur. During class we were supposed to make our own hat but to my surprise when I went outside to pick up my students in the morning they were wearing some paper ones that one of the mom had purchased for everyone at Party City. Later in the day after reading The Cat in the Hat we colored our paper hats and wrote words from the “at” word family on it

Students wore their Silliest Socks! We used a template I found on the internet so that students could draw their silly socks.

I was so excited for this day because of the cutest hats I found from Kreative in Kinder. After we made our hats we sat down and watch a YouTube version of Cat in the Hat while wearing the hats. Here my kinder team and I are posing before the excited kids come in. Our Thing 1 & Thing 2 circles were just printed from the internet and laminated!

My kinder kids knew we were going to be tasting green eggs in advance and boy were they excited! I could hear them at my classroom door early before the bell rang. When they all walked in I had the egg set up on a skillet. We read Green Eggs and Ham then wrote about our experience and our favorite part.
That was our Dr. Seuss/Read Across America week.
Can't wait to do it all over again next year!
