This past Friday, March 6th FSAPS celebrated Dr. Seuss’ Birthday! Every student from Pre-K through 8th grade entered the school to special surprises to celebrate the day. Thing 1 and Thing 2 greeted middle school students who dressed up with a hat, bow tie to decorate, and special treat (because you’re never too old for a little Seuss). Everyone who was dressed in black received a set of whiskers, red and white striped hat, and black nose on their faces to be “The Cat in the Hat.” By the end of 1st period we had an entire school of Cat in the Hats!!
Elementary students enjoyed an afternoon-long journey through the wonderfully wacky world of Dr. Seuss’ most famous stories. Students rotated through all the elementary classrooms, collecting Dr. Seuss themed prizes to put in their goodie bags, hearing a story, and then completing activities based on the book they just heard.
After listening to Bartholomew and the Oobleck, students used Elmer’s glue, Borax, food coloring, and water to concoct their own gooey Oobleck. The reading of One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish preceded the measuring activity geared towards creating Dr. Seuss “Silly Soup.” The imaginative illustrations of The Lorax served as inspiration for some very creative art projects. The Foot Book got the students moving with some fun games inspired by this classic story. Finally, students enjoyed cooking projects and language arts activities following the story Green Eggs and Ham.
