Dr. Seuss Party

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
I wanted to share this party with you all as we draw closer to celebrating Theodor Seuss Geisl.  Hopefully, this gives you some ideas as you celebrate in small or big ways.
Every year, we get excited about throwing a Back to School party for my son’s class.  We love it, because it’s a great way to get to  know my son’s classmates, their families, and the teachers outside of the school setting!  Enjoy!

Happy Birthday to an Icon

Friday, March 2nd, 2012 by by

One of my heroes while growing up was, and always will be, Theodor Seuss Geisel. He was, of course, better known by his children’s book pen names Dr. Seuss and Theo LeSieg. On Friday, March 2nd, it would have been the late children’s author’s 108th birthday. This date has also been reserved as “National Read Across America Day,” during which many communities are holding read-a-thons and attempts to break records for reading related events.

I had wanted to share with you a whole week of activities that I have planned to celebrate my favorite author. Unfortunately, my ancient laptop has finally bit the dust, and my computer access is highly limited at the moment. So for now, I will share with you some of the ideas that I have planned. I will make my best attempt to post our personal experiences with the activities through the week. I have categorized the activities with the books that they go with. A good starting point, before you jump right into these, would be to check out the websites:

Oh the Places You’ll Go
~Discuss different jobs that your child could have when they grow up. Glue a paper doll die cut to a piece of paper and have your child decorate it as what they would like to be or do. 
~Make a balloon wall! Cut balloon shapes out of construction paper and have your child look through magazines to find pictures of things they would like to see or places they would like to go. Help them cut out the pictures and paste them to the balloons collage style, and hang them on a wall where they can look at it and be proud. (more…)
