Did you celebrate?

Today was Dr. Seuss's birthday.  Elementary teachers everywhere celebrated with their students.  So does that make me a bad teacher if I didn't even mention it?  I only teach my group of first graders for an hour about three times a week.  Dr. Seuss is not my favorite author. We worked on writing (working on a post for tomorrow to tell you all about it!).  We used Pete the Cat, our favorite book at the moment.  Maybe I haven't read the right book yet.  What would you recommend?

My only Dr. Seuss moment of the day:  When I come home (and I get home before my husband), I check the mail.  Opening the mailbox, I had a package waiting for me.  I love getting packages in the mail.  It's like a small Christmas every time.  I opened the package and this is what I found:

I recently participated in my first tweet chat, #TeachChat.  There were a few prizes given away for answering questions during the chat and I won one.  That was exciting.  I am grateful to Really Good Stuff for offering prizes during the chat.  I am going to give the stickers to the kindergarten teachers I work with because they celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday today with their students.

What did you do for Dr. Seuss day?


  1. These stickers are super cute, and how lucky is your kindergarten teachers!!

    Hello from a new follower :)

    Kylie !

  2. It's not officially a Dr. Seuss book -- but it was inspired by his notebooks and thinking and his books were a mentor -- is HOORAY FOR DIFFENDOOFER DAY. It's written by Jack Pretlusky and Lane Smith. It is one of my very favorites. Check it out!

  3. We watched Tebow and Justin Bieber read Dr. Seuss, and we drew Cat and the Hat and called it good. :)

  6. Hi Jana:
    We used our "Seuss efforts" to read to our kinder buddies at the end of the day. I was so surprised that some of the kids had such impassioned feelings about their favorite Seuss book. It was a tie between Green Eggs and Ham and The Cat in the Hat. Honestly, I think they are actually remembering TV shows and movies...

  7. Love your blog! It's super cute. I am your newest follower. Come visit my blog when you get a chance!


  8. My entire school had pajama day so the kids could read. We were also encouraged to take as many AR tests as possible. It would have been nearly impossible to opt out.


I would love to hear from you. Let's start a conversation.
