March 2nd would have been Dr. Seuss’s 113th birthday! His birthday is now recognized as Read Across America Day, where children all over the country celebrate their love of reading and learning. The elementary students in the additional days program had fun honoring the beloved author, reading his books, creating a puppet show, and enjoying some delicious green eggs and ham!
The puppet show was based on the book “One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish” and they presented it to the primary children during their lunchtime. The elementary students passed out tickets to the children and then came around and “electronically” swiped the tickets before the show. They created the puppet theatre and the puppets, and Mia read the story while Zarah, Sadie and Zachary manned the puppets. The primary children thoroughly enjoyed their “lunch” theatre.
After the show the elementary students had worked up quite an appetite, so they made themselves some green eggs and ham (and pancakes)!
