Read Across America Festivities

Today's post is a quick one.  The crew at Primary Chalkboard are sponsoring a week long linking for Read Across America Week, and the topic for today is All Things Dr. Seuss!  I thought I'd take a moment to share our plans for the week. 

The first step in our preparations for the week was to decorate our doors.  Here are the pictures...

Friday, our beloved principal will be duct taped to the wall by each child who has met our reading incentive for the quarter, and we're each dressing up as our favorite Seuss character.  My teammate in Title 1 is going to be Thing 1, and I'm going to be Thing 2.  (pictures to come)

It should be a very fun week.  Thanks for the opportunity to link up, and for more Seuss ideas, drop by and visit The Primary Chalkboard {here}

Tomorrow's focus is about reading strategies, and I'm guest blogging at The Reading Tutor/OG.  You can catch my post on visualizing over on Emily's blog.

Until then...happy reading!


  1. I love all of your doors! I'm sure the kids are having so much fun this week.

    1. I forgot the writing prompt for this week...mentor text=The Lorax. I also got this cute peek over of the Lorax for the kids to make. Should be fun.

  2. Thanks for sharing! The doors are ADORABLE!!!

    1. Thanks Monique! I thought they all looked really cute. One of the K teachers did an adorable bulletin board too which I should have photographed for this post. Once my kids finish their Lorax writing prompts, I'll try to do a follow up.

  3. We have a book character parade on Friday. My own children attend the school where I teach, and we have been working on costumes all week. Look out for Ladybug Girl and Stanley Yelnats (of Holes)!

  4. Oh how cute! Ahh...Ladybug Girl! Love it! I picked up Bumblebee Boy at Ollie's recently. What a cute book! Love Stanley too. My daughter just read Holes recently with her reading group.
