The Cat in the Hat came back

The Cat in the Hat came back

Toni Webb, kindergarten teacher at Garfield Elementary School and local Read Across America organizer, said the annual Seuss celebration is truly a community event.

The Mooreville students are Beta Club members and visited Kids Landing to help them celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss by reading and assisting with craft activities as a part of "Read Across America Week".

Jill Kary, curator of education at the Arkansas State University Museum, read Which Pet Should I Get to two groups of children. With the release of "The Cat in the Hat", Ted became the definitive children's book author and illustrator.

Waterford Elementary School participated in the reading week by having dress-up days and even buying T-shirts.

On Friday, Andrews said, students would get a day of reading and relaxation. The idea was developed 20 years ago, with an emphasis on reading motivation and awareness for every child in every community. Before the students tried them, they had to make a hypothesis saying if they thought they would be good or not.

Outside the library, student artwork and writing related to Dr. Suess was on display.

She chose to have the book published, she said.

"Fluency is something I see these kids lacking in", Doup said, adding that practicing reading aloud with familiar books that rhyme can help the students gain confidence in their reading ability and improve their timing and inflection.

"The kids have read one book a day", said Neva Kern, first-grade teacher at Newport.

Said Audra, "It's just really fun that our school does this".

"I like how we get to take half an hour and just get to sit and relax and read", she said. "But it is fun to do and kids are either afraid of Cat in the Hat or want to have their pictures taken with him".

"I love reading", she said.

Little Hocking also had mystery readers every day during the morning announcements.

When Greer read "Green Eggs and Ham", his classroom quickly connected with the story.

On the importance of reading, Dreiling said, "They have to learn, and they learn from us".

Included in the show are examples of sketches, magazine illustrations, pages from his famous books, private paintings, and some of the most delightful taxidermy you'll ever come across. First, second and third grades watched a video of the "Happy Birthday to You!" book being read.
