Students read, perform and craft in celebration of Dr. Seuss

Elementary and middle schools students from across the county read books, performed stories and dressed up in celebration of Read Across America Day


March 1, 2013:

  • Students at Pinewood Elementary School celebrated the day by reading Dr. Seuss stories and dressing up as special characters from the book.
  • Primary school students at Deer Park Elementary School gathered for an assembly in which kindergarten students performed a poem highlighting popular Dr. Seuss books. Teachers also presented a Readers Theater to the Dr. Seuss book "I Can Read With My Eyes Shut," and students listened to a musical version of "The Cat in the Hat." 
  • Volunteers at Elmwood Elementary School read "The Cat in the Hat" to kindergartners and then helped them create their own version of the cat's hat to wear as they practiced writing "at" words.
  • Students and staff at Jacksonville Elementary School dressed up like Dr. Seuss characters and spent 20 minutes of dedicated schoolwide "drop everything and read" time.

Sponsored by the National Education Association, Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on or near to Dr. Seuss's March 2nd birthday.
