Today is Read Across America Day in honor of Dr. Seuss! His birthday is actually tomorrow, but we are celebrating today. Dr. Seuss wrote many children's books, and was famous for his silly rhymes and recognizable illustrations. In the morning, we read a Scholastic News magazine about Dr. Seuss and his story called The Lorax. We also read two Dr. Seuss books and did activities with them. First, we read Horton Hatches The Egg. We did a story frame about the story and also practiced drawing Horton just like Dr. Seuss did.
Next, we read Fox in Socks. It is quite a tongue twister, and we all practiced reading the different lines as slow and fast as we could. We also made a list of the nonsense words that he used in the story. Finally, we wrote our own Green Eggs and Ham poetry. It was a great day!
