Read Across America 2012

It has been almost one year since I began hosting Linky Parties on my blog.  Currently, I host a monthly Book Picks linky party.  I love finding new books and sharing them with my students and son at home.  Since, Read Across America is fast approaching, I thought I would host a Linky Party in honor of this event.


Here are some of my favorite Dr. Seuss books.  I love, love, love Horton! And, Seussical the musical is on rotation all year long in my classroom.


Do you have any special plans?  Are you in need of some inspiration?  What are you Pinning? Use the button above to link up and share! Let's celebrate our love of reading and an author who inspired young readers to love it too.


Happy Reading!

  2. I get so excited about Dr. Seuss's Birthday. This is the night we hold are Family Literacy Night. We transform our hallways to "Seussville" and each class room have 5 activities based off Dr. Seuss books. We have volunteers dress up as The Cat in the Hat, and Thing one & Thing Two. We also have a scholastic book fair the whole week & during our literacy night. There is food, photo ops, & a free book (from our scholastic bonus points) for each child. During the week the children have "Crazy Hat day" "Silly sock day" etc. full of activities. It is so much fun and a great connection between home and school.

  3. Okay let me try that again :o)
    I just love celebrating Dr. Seuss' bday! We
    ( the teachers dress up like cat in the hat ) and when the kiddos arrive we add whiskers/noses to their sweet little faces with eyebrow pencil. I have a mom helper in the hallway making green eggs and ham and we have several mystery readers come in that day too. Definitely a favorite time in first grade. :o)
    I will post pictures soon so stop by my brand new blog:

  4. I think I will break out the green eggs and ham. I also have the students bring in any Dr. Seuss book they have at home. They love having me read their books. I'm going to link up my math stations too.

  5. I am a new grade 3 teacher at the International School of Tanganyika in Tanzania and I am bringing the concept of Read Across America to Africa. As a school we support the Heifer Organization with our annual event Read to Feed for the entire month of February. I am also going to host a grade 3 Read-a-thon. We will dress in our pajamas, bring our favorite books, have breakfast for lunch and read, read, read all day. The classroom is going to share the book reviews they have been writing and are going to have some surprise guest readers. I love Dr. Seuss and will wish him a Happy Birthday from overseas! I enjoy the blog so much...keep up the great work.

  6. I loved going all out for Dr. Seuss's birthday when I was an elementary librarian. It was the kick off to a huge school-wide reading contest. My favorite was the year I got several teachers (and my hubby) to act out a skit I wrote in the style of "this is your life" with Dr. Suess (played by hubby) as the guest! Now that I'm a SAHM I've had to modify the activities. ;-) Last year my kids were only 20 months and it our play date wasn't quite what I'd hoped, but this year I hope to do more. I'll wait to add my post from this year rather than linking my post from last year.
