Read Across America!

I love when I am able to incorporate some of my favorite activities that I did as a classroom teacher into our home school days.  We got together with friends this year and celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday with a Read Across America celebration.
We began our day with a reading of "Green Eggs and Ham" and of course had to try some of our own.  I think almost all of the kiddos tried them and liked them.  We may have had one or two opt out of the green eggs.  Ha!  I can't say I blame them.  They do look weird.

Shared reading with friends


My favorite part of the day was our Reader's Theatre.  Everyone had a part and dressed up as their character.  Each reader made their own costume.  They were all so creative!!  Here are our narrators (The Cat in the Hat)

Thing 1 and Thing 2

The Lorax

The Grinch

Somehow I didn't get a picture of Mr. Brown and the Fish in a Dish.  They were just as fantastic as all of our other readers.
Finally we ended the day with making our own book marks
I think everyone had a great time celebrating reading and the wonderful Dr. Seuss.

  1. I love love love the pictures and feel like I just caught up on some. You were *so* born to be a teacher, May. Aren't you so thankful that God has placed you in the position to lead your own children??? Praise God. PS I love Hayley's book choice! Issa's favorites too!! (yayas!) Love you May!
