On March 2 readers all over the world celebrated the birthday of Dr. Seuss. This year at Smith students celebrated his birthday in style with Seussville Stations. At the Makerspace, makers received a Lego Challenge to create a character from one of Dr. Seuss' books. The Cat in the Hat and the truffula tree were among the most popular items to create. The Lorax made his appearance on the wall and so did Horton the elephant! Students are really enjoying the Lego Wall in the Makerspace!
Another popular station was Seuss-O! Even today's children love Bingo...it's always a crowd favorite. Students took turns calling out the characters and used Lego pieces as their markers.
It's not a celebration without an old-fashioned photo booth! Seussville at Smith Reads was complete with a truffula tree backdrop and Dr. Seuss props. Students had so much fun taking photos with their friends using an ipad and the fun props from different stories! Readers from Kindergarten through fifth grade LOVED taking fun pics in the library's Seussville-styled photo booth.
Even Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Pelias joined in the zany fun as Thing 1 and Thing 2!
Seussville Stations included some online fun at www.seussville.com Students were able to play silly Seuss games and watch fun videos to remember their favorite Seuss books!
Kindergarten students enjoyed a handprint station where they turned their upside-down handprint into Horton the elephant! Remember, "A person's a person no matter how small". This idea was on Pinterest and directions can be found at https://www.pinterest.com/janpelias/dr-seuss-day-march-2/
Mrs. Smith helps tickled the students hands with the paint brush and helped them make their handprints. Here's hoping she was able to get the paint off her pretty pink sweater! Thank you, Mrs. Smith for helping with the painting fun in the library!!!
Sometimes students just enjoyed reading through their favorite Dr. Seuss books...either on their own or with friends! "The more you read...the more you know!!!"
