READING/HOLIDAYS
Ideas for Celebrating Dr. Seuss' Birthday! (March 2nd)

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah
Date Submitted: February 25, 2002

1 - Take a book by Dr. Seuss and turn it into a Reader's Theater. An excellent book to use is "Oh, The Wonderful Things Mr. Brown Can Do," or "Yertle the Turtle." It might be fun to have each upper grade classroom perform a Reader's Theater for the younger grades on March 2nd.

2 - Invite a community guest into your classroom to read his/her favorite Dr. Seuss book. Some guests might include: the city mayor, a high school athlete, musician, etc., the local dentist, your principal, or someone else in the community that your students admire.

3 - Collect different Dr. Seuss books to have out for students to read during the day.

4 - Read "The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins" and have a hat parade! Invite all students in the school to wear their favorite hat, or make some of your own! Have one class start the parade by marching down the hall to the next classroom. Have classes wait in their rooms until the parade comes through, and then add on to the end.

5 - Hang a school-wide graph on the wall where students vote for their favorite Dr. Seuss book.

6 - Encourage students to read that night in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday. Students can sign their name on the fish pattern for each book that was read. Hang the fish on a bulletin board titled, "McElligot's Pool!" Students could also receive a candy fish too!

7 - Decorate every door with favorite Dr. Seuss books of "Seuss-isms."

8 - Hold a "read-a-thon" in your classroom. Throw pillows and snacks make it extra fun!

9 - Host a "Reading Cafe." Click here for details
