Celebrating Dr. Seuss Week

Dr. Seuss week was full of wacky and wild adventures for our kindergarten & first grade classes. They made their own Cat in the Hat's and then filled his hat with crazy adjectives, they wrote about what they would do if the Cat in the Hat came to their house, they tasted delicious green eggs and ham, and even had their very own Dr. Seuss Photo Booth. However, their favorite part was sharing all of the wonderful Dr. Seuss stories with one another, because in the words of Dr, Seuss himself, "You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child!"
