Hooray, for Dr. Seuss Day!!!


READ ACROSS AMERICA DAY is coming up quickly!
It is such a fun celebration.  
The kiddos love Dr. Seuss and all of his rhymes and nonsense.


We have a full day or two of activities planned...
Including a schoolwide read-a-thon.
We plan to prepare a pot of Dr. Seuss Soup to enjoy while reading around the room...
 the mixture is Seussical and a perfect snack for the day.


Graphing our favorite Seuss books is hysterical!!





We partner up to complete many hands on activities.
The student booklet helps us keep our tools organized.







We are always looking for ways to improve our math skills...
so of course we have a few Seussical game boards also. 







Here is to a fabulous, Seussical Day!!

Celebrating President's Day


This week we took a break from our reading program since it was a short week.
It was fun to be able to spend time reading and writing about past presidents.
The kiddos loved learning about Abe and George ;)

We enjoyed many books and the little Brain Pop Jr. videos on each.
After reading and watching we created a rough draft on each president.

Then we use Doodle Bugs directed drawing activity. 
 The kids LOVED this and
they did such a great job on their reports.
