Celebrating Dr. Seuss

I am a lover of all things Dr. Seuss. I saw an awesome activity for Dr. Seuss' birthday on Teaching In Room 6 and finally was able to make it work in our schedule. The main task aligned so well with our current reading comprehension goals and it was great to switch gears and have some fun in reading groups!
The main task was to read a classic Dr. Seuss book, discuss the story in their small group, and then rename the story. We've learned how to use the theme and message of a story to generate a new equally fitting title for books. The added bonus here was to come up with Dr. Seuss worthy titles!
The kids loved this week of reading fun! It was great to let our hair down and do a fun project. The kids got a trip out of the new titles they came up with and they all got to flex their artistic muscles.

I'm so glad we finally did this project - for sure a yearly activity for me now!

Fairwell Winter

Spring is here, I hear...
Spring is here, I hear...

{Spring is Here -- Frank Sinatra}

Happy first full day of spring...?

Winter hung on to the last moment this year.

Nearly a foot of snow in the last week of winter...
Windy and very cold temps right up until the equinox...

It was amazing to think we were "roasting" at the end of February with a serious taste of nearly summer and in the ice box straight through March.

I am usually a winter lover, but this year I am ready for some warmth.
Ready to not be cold.
Ready to see some color on the trees!

Spring...where art though!?

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 12

The Good:
I saw the second show in my Broadway in Boston subscription this week. I had already seen this once before and it was just as fantastic the second time around!

The Random:
Sooooooo....March came in like a polar bear. We went from ending February with record breaking temps near 80 and got some snow last week and then had temps WELL below freezing...and then got a blizzard...oh New England.

The Fun:
I did a virtual 5k in honor of Pi Day. 3.14 miles to be exact. The entry fee went to support STEM education for girls. It was a lovely 14 with the windchill when I set out. I had a lovely wind burn but a lovely feeling of supporting a good cause, plus I earned some new hardware!
