In celebration of the birthday of renowned children’s author Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known by his pen name Dr. Seuss, students from Sylvan Avenue Elementary School recently took part in a collaborative literary activity in their classrooms.

Fourth-grade students enrolled in Ursula Camenzuli’s class met with their book buddies from Erin Miller’s first-grade class in an effort to teach the younger students about the popular literary works created by Dr. Seuss. The students highly enjoyed taking turns reading classics such as “The Cat in the Hat,” “Green Eggs and Ham” and “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish” to one another. 

Prior to the conclusion of the collaborative event, the students filled out a work sheet asking them to create a series of rhyming words to be incorporated into a fun paragraph, mimicking Dr. Seuss’ popular style of writing.
