Did your child's school celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday today?

I work at a preschool and we are having a Dr. Seuss celebration all week. I made some Cat-in-the hat cookies and since I had extra I took it to my son's classroom along with his favorite Dr. Seuss book. The teacher thanked me and she said that she had completely forgotten about it. I thought Dr. Seuss week was really big in the elementary schools because of NEA's "Read across America". So, did your child's school celebrate in any way? If so, what did they do?

  • They've been celebrating all week, but my daughter's teacher didn't do anything special today, just some of the other teachers. Last year (kindergarten) they all wore red and made hats and had a party with treats.

  • Yes. I honestly think it i show I first learned how to read by myself. I was born in another country. So when I cam here at 4 I knew only my native tongue. Dr. Seuss taught me how to read. So well that in 6th grade I had a 12th grade reading average. So i highly reccomend Dr. Seuss.

  • My preschool class celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday on the 2nd. We made Green Eggs and Ham, read the book. Made Cat in the Hats from the kids footprints. We have been doing Dr. Seuss things all week and reading a lot of his books. We had so much fun that we are continuing the celebration next week!!! The kids have learned to rhyme because of Dr. Seuss. There are so many lessons and activities that can be taught from Dr. Seuss.
