Happy Birthday Dr Seuss

Today was SO much fun!
My 3rd graders had a blast, made a mess, & were inspired -
Great things happened today, 
thanks to a wonderful, talented, literary icon!  
Did I mention that I must have been CRAZY to do the OoBleck experiment in my classroom solo with, oh.....about  30 kiddos! I guess I conveniently forgot about what a mess a little cornstarch and water can make!  (totally worth it!)
I also discovered a Dr. Seuss book that I've never read! IDK how this one slipped by me? Have you read?
Hooray for Diffendoofer Day? If not I recommend it,
especially if you teach a testing grade!


"All schools for miles and miles around
Must take a special test,
To see who's learning such and such-
To see which school's the best
If our small school does not do well,
Then it will be torn down,
And you will have to go to school in dreary
FLOBBERTOWN."



      Then tonight the family went to see the LORAX in 3-D! It was really great!
The Lorax
Those fantastic LORAX mustaches are a freebie from:
