Dr. Seuss Classroom Party

New book, old book, little book, big book…it doesn’t matter! Just grab a book because March 2nd marks Read Across America Day and it just so happens to be the beloved children’s author, Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Classrooms across the country will be cracking open their favorite silly Seuss stories for this special occasion. We all know that a celebration wouldn’t be complete without a party!

Here are some Seuss-gestions of how to celebrate the Dr.’s birthday in style:

*Have a read-a-thon. Encourage children to bring in their favorite books and snuggle up and read. Take it an extra step by inviting parents and grandparents to join in on the fun. If you make it a pajama party, you are sure to be the favorite teacher of all!

*Invite celebrity readers. Reach out to well known community members to read aloud stories to your class on this special day.

*Create your own Seussical. Have students act out their favorite Dr. Seuss stories. Too shy for the stage? Allow students to write a rhyming story full of fun nonsense just like Dr. Seuss.

*Have a big buddy read. Invite former students that are now in middle school or high school to join your students in reading. What a great way for students to act as a role model!

*Oh and of course throw a party. Make sure not to get icing on those book pages!

If you can’t think of a Thing 1 or Thing 2 to do for a party, you can find all these Suesstastic items in the Simply Sprout Etsy shop here.
