Read Across America Day- Dr. Seuss Style

Wednesday is the NEA's Read Across America Day. This was one of my favorite days when I was teaching. There are so many fun ways to celebrate reading!

This blog, ObSEUSSed has so many fantastic ideas. You can find food, crafts, activities, and more on this site. It is one of the best collections of Seuss stuff.

Here is some of the fun we did last year during daycare:

Green Eggs & Ham for lunch...of course!

We read several Dr. Seuss books and made a page for each book we read.

The Foot Book feet painting

One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish was glitter paint sponge painting.

Ten Apples Up On Top ...the kids took round apples and piled them up on top in order!

Paper plate food for Green Eggs & Ham.

Outside we did a little Hop on Pop...don't make fun of my quick drawing skills though!

We also enjoyed cupcakes at the end of the day with a candle in each one as we sang "Happy Birthday" to Dr. Seuss.

Have fun whatever you do, and let us know what you did to celebrate!
