Lower Schoolers at Wooster are celebrating Dr. Seuss’s Birthday! Second graders continued their celebration of his birthday with their Dr. Seuss author study. The students read and listened to dozens of Dr. Seuss books. Literacy and math lessons were intertwined with The Lorax, The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, Horton Hears a Who, and If I Ran the Zoo. The children also worked on creative writing pieces, art projects, and mathematical estimation.
Students wrote about what they would do to save the earth if they could be the Lorax, and also made their own Lorax. The students also estimated the number of goldfish in each container and played word games using comparative adjectives. The children enjoyed delicious snacks like Cat in the Hat treats on Truffula tree sticks and goldfish to symbolize the books Cat in the Hat, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish and the Lorax. In addition, Greg Lewis, parent of Sariah Lewis ‘23, shared his experience working on the movie Horton Hears a Who. Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
