My students need a variety of new Dr. Seuss books, like "Lorax," "Green Eggs and Ham," and "Horton Hears A Who!", & racks on which to put them, because our books have spines that are not fine and racks that attack.
So many happy faces are the result of reading Dr. Seuss books. My students love to hear the stories, and this year they were super happy to be Daisy-Head Mayzie on Dr. Seuss's Birthday. Unfortunately, our copies of Daisy-Head Mayzie and other Dr. Seuss books have been loved to within an inch of their lives!
My library students attend an urban K-5 school in Connecticut in a largely industrial neighborhood.
They are good, well-behaved children from working-class or single-parent families, many first generation. I think you would be impressed, as I am, with how hard they work, even when it is a struggle. It is very important for them to hear and recognize the same stories that we have all loved as children. This helps them to feel, as they grow, that they are part of the whole, and the background information and cultural references they gain from reading these stories are invaluable.
My students need a variety of new Dr. Seuss books, like "Lorax," "Green Eggs and Ham," and "Horton Hears A Who!", & racks on which to put them, because our books have spines that are not fine and racks that attack. Mention Dr. Seuss to almost anyone you know and you will most likely have something you like in common. Most of us have heard Dr. Seuss books before we even entered school but this is not the case for many or even most of my students. Dr. Seuss is important as a cultural touchstone and, more importantly, as a captivating literacy tool. Students learn cadence, rhyming, vocabulary and reading through Dr. Seuss, and all the while enjoying a silly story which teaches that reading can be a real hoot!
Students are greatly impacted by stories that capture their attention and imagination.
Dr. Seuss does this with rhyming and repetition, both of which are soothing to young students. Students also love the tales that Dr. Seuss tells and recognize that their is a real message (albeit disguised as silliness) in each of his tales. These kinds of learning moments are often overlooked but cannot be discounted for the meaning and texture that they add to learning and a good school experience.Read More
