dr. seuss day

Dr. Seuss’s birthday is March 2nd {he was born in 1904}, but my kids celebrated “dr. seuss day” at school yesterday on the 3rd with hat day and a read-a-thon.

I helped kick-off the festivities in each of their classes. First I gave everyone a “dr. seuss” hat, it was officially “hat” day so some kids chose to wear their own, but the seuss hats added to the fun. I read, “Fox in Sox,” and at times had the kids help me read the book. It cracked me up hearing them laugh at each other trying to say the tongue twisters. I had a few kids who said, “I don’t get this at all, this story doesn’t make any sense!” Then we played a game that related to the book where you sit on the floor in a circle, have a pile of socks in varying sizes {all new & clean,} and have them spend one minute racing to get on as many socks as possible {on one foot.} Each winner won their own copy of “Fox in Sox.” It was a riot! Myla held the record out of all of the classes with 20 socks, but she did get a little practice the night before when I had KJ, Myla, and Kiana pre-run the game to see how much time I should allow…

Kiana’s class-

KJ’s class-
Myla’s class- hey, if any families need some new socks these days…i could seriously take care of that for you…

also, I have LOVED the who you are comments from my blog readers. I really look forward to this weekend and a little more free time to catch up with all of you via your blogs!
