SHOREWOOD – Troy Crossroads Elementary School celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday this month during National Read across America Day with books by the acclaimed author and activities.
Special themed days were The Cat in the Hat Day, where students wore stripes like the mischievous cat in the book; Fox in Socks Day, where students wore fun or crazy socks; Green Eggs and Ham Day, where students wore green; and Dress like your Favorite Dr. Seuss Character Day.
Crossroads Principal Jill Masheimer also read excerpts from Dr. Seuss books during morning announcements, and classes guessed which Seuss book she was reading. Masheimer visited the winning class at the end of each day to read the story in its entirety.
Grade levels also participated in various Seuss-based activities and projects throughout the week. The school’s Literacy Committee put the special week together. “Students loved the activities planned by the Crossroads’ Literacy Committee,” Crossroads Reading Specialist Ashley Lamorte said. “It was a great way to show students that reading is fun and to celebrate Dr. Seuss.”
