Reading with Seuss

Sylvan Avenue Elementary School students celebrated literacy as they marked Dr. Seuss’ birthday this March by participating in a variety of activities with peers.

Fifth-grade students celebrated Read Across America Day by reading to some of the school’s younger students. Wearing shirts that could be read by their younger peers, the fifth-graders read several of Dr. Seuss’ most popular books before the pairs engaged in fun activities. They created posters to promote reading that used only words from “The Cat in the Hat” and drafted Dr. Seuss acrostic poems.

Fourth-grade students in Lauren Coleman’s class met with their book buddies from Christina Law's first-grade class to celebrate Read Across America Day. The students read Dr. Seuss books to one another and exchanged bookmarks and hats that they had created.
