Happy Friday! This has been and amazingly fun but exhausting week. We have celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday and Read Across America Day all week long. I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to tell you all about it:
We started the week making these Cat in the Hat directed drawings. As you can see, we think outside the box around here.
Each primary class in our school chose a Dr. Seuss book to do something Seuss-y with for a parade on Wednesday. My class has been itching for a pajama day since the last pajama day, so we chose I Am NOT Going to Get Up Today! and wore our jammies all day. Best. Day. Ever!
We took advantage of our pajama day to do a little read-a-thon. Makes my teacher heart happy. <3
We had a couple visitors stop by on Wednesday, too. One was none other than The Cat in the Hat himself. (I LOVE our EAs!)
And another was a manager from the local Univision news who read a couple books to the class. Guest speakers really shake up our reading time! :)
At the end of the day Wednesday, we had a school wide celebration complete with the parade, cheerleaders from the high school, a choir performance, and a flash mob.
Thursday, we were still doing Dr. Seuss stuff, but we had to do a little social studies integration to go along with it. So…we read The Butter Battle Book, discussed alternative methods for solving our problems, then held a Butter Battle Ballot to vote on which way we thought our buttered bread should go. There were some very strong opinions on this one!
And that's just the tip of the iceberg! There were Dr. Seuss books read aloud all day each day this week. How was your week? Let me know in the comments below then swing by Doodle Bugs Teaching for more Five for Friday fun. Have a great weekend!
