Pre-K students at
Biscayne Elementary recently celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday and were surprised when they walked into their classroom and saw teacher, Debra Hannah, dressed up as the mischievous “Thing 1.” The theme was carried throughout the classroom with red and white décor.
Each student was given a red T-shirt with Thing 2, 3, 4 and so on, and began the day with activities centered on this special celebration.
Mrs. Hannah read Dr. Seuss books, students colored a hat picture red and white like the infamous hat in
The Cat in the Hat, practiced writing the alphabet on Dr. Seuss paper, and practiced "at" words by writing them on an "at" hat.
After reading The Cat in the Hat, Mrs. Hannah conducted a text-to-self session where students discussed what they would do if mom left them home alone while she went to work. During lunch, students watched the "Hop on Pop" DVD.
The day culminated with the enjoyment of a hat-shaped cake made by Mrs. Hannah.
Sabal Palm Elementary also showed their love for Dr. Seuss with a full week of birthday activities. Students participated in Crazy Socks Day, Dress like a Sneetch Day and Crazy Hat Day.
Daily trivia questions on the school’s news show inspired young and old to think like Dr. Seuss. There were hundreds of students all dressed in yellow lined up outside the library to come in and get their own green star to put on their belly just like a Sneetch. There were also a few sightings of the Cat in the Hat!
Everyone had a great time remembering the legendary American writer and cartoonist Dr. Seuss.
