Kindergartners celebrates Dr. Seuss week
Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2nd – Dr. Seuss birthday! Weddington Elementary kindergartners celebrated Dr. Seuss birthday with a week-long filled with Dr. Seuss’ learning activities.
This nationwide observance coincides with the birthday of Dr. Seuss, an American writer best known for writing children’s books. Some of his most known books include Green Eggs and Ham, Horton Hears a Who, and The Cat in the Hat.
Dr. Seuss exemplified a love of children and learning. His use of rhyme makes his books an effective tool to teach young children the basic skills they need to be successful readers.
Mrs. Shuford’s kindergarten class practiced their rhyming by creating a Wocket Pocket. Each student created words that rhymed with their names and displayed their Wocket Pocket sheets on Mrs. Shuford’s There’s a Wocket in my Pocket classroom door. Rhyming is an essential skill for kindergartners to practice as they begin learning to read.
To end our Dr. Seuss week, our kindergartners dressed up as their favorite Dr. Seuss character and paraded throughout Weddington Elementary School! This week was Seuss-tastic for WDES!
