Dr. Seuss' Birthday

Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss' birthday.  To celebrate, we've joined forces with Ms. Berry's class and Mrs. Boutin's to plan a few fun activities that will take place in the gym during the last 45 minutes of the school day.

Part of our agenda involves using an iPad to project the storybook, The Cat in the Hat, onto the huge screen in the gym.  Following the reading of this book, two first graders will hook up with a kindergartener to read the first six pages of the sequel, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back.  We practiced reading our designated parts on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Our plan was to continue to practice reading our assigned pages on Thursday.  As  it seemed likely that school would be cancelled, we made extra copies to send home.  If at all possible, please help your first grader to practice reading his/her assigned pages.

I plan to take pictures all day Friday so that you might get a bird's eye view of the fun we have.  Stay tuned!
