“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
A week’s worth of reading celebrations in Granite School District ended with Seuss-style games, pajama parties, and loads of page turning as students devoured book after book.
The annual Read Across America Week is an opportunity for schools to commemorate the birthday of Dr. Seuss with a myriad of reading festivities. For example:
Second-graders in Hallie Myler’s class at Valley Crest Elementary retold their favorite stories with spoon and clothespin puppets, and wrote about the places they will go in the future.
Over at Whittier Elementary, Celia Cooper’s students decided to have a beach themed read-a-thon complete with paper palm trees and flip-flops.
Principals at several schools donned the famous Cat in the Hat costume to the delight of students and teachers, who were undoubtedly pleased to see their school leader in full feline fashion.
