Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

My students need a set of Dr. Seuss books, rhyming extension activities, and headphones to use with our classroom computer center where rhyming activities will be used.

My Students

"I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam-I-am." Iconic words that remind us of adventurous dyed egg breakfasts, silly rhymes, and absurd characters. With these books, my students will discover Horton, Sam-I-Am, and the Cat in the Hat as we celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday!

I teach two 30-student kindergarten classes in an urban, public school in California.

Our school is located in a low-income area and serves 640 students in grade K-5, the majority of whom are English language learners. We have a strong community bond built around the core values respect, responsibility, persistence, empathy, and global citizenship, and our school is ranked as one of the highest performing schools in low-income areas within our state. Each class of my students spends four hours in our classroom learning phonics, phonemic awareness, reading, writing, social studies, and science. While most of my students begin kindergarten with no prior pre-school experience, by the end of the year the majority of them will have academically grown a year and a half, placing them at a mid-first grade reading level. My students are enthusiastic, active, and particularly skilled at arguing for more recess and arts and crafts projects.

My Project

Dr. Seuss' birthday is on March 2nd, so we will be celebrating this children's author with a 3-week reading and writing unit centered around his extensive works. The resources I am requesting include 10 hardcover Dr. Seuss books, which we will read as a class over this reading unit. Dr. Seuss' works are imaginative, silly, and full of rhyming and sight words. Words that my students will be able to access in a whole group setting and in shared reading extensions. We will build off Dr. Seuss' imaginative worlds as a starting point for in-class writing of our own. The listening set of 4 Dr. Seuss books and 4 Cd's will be used to incorporate rhyming and shared reading into our new classroom computer center. We recently received a donation of four computers, and this is a great opportunity for students to be able to interact with classroom material more independently while still being guided through harder reading sections. The headphones I have requested will be used in this center.

His words are sometimes nonsense, his illustrations are out-of-this world (literally), and he has fascinated readers young and old for decades.

With this book and listening center set, my students will read, rhyme, and imagine with Dr. Seuss. We will grow our brains through reading, writing, and arts and crafts projects that bring the cat in the hat, hop on pop, and other classics alive within our classroom - just in time for Dr. Seuss' birthday in early March!
