Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

For those of you who did not know this, yesterday was Dr. Seuss's birthday! We had a lot of fun celebrating this at Hamagrael today. Our principal, Mr. K was dressed up as the cat in the hat and visiting classrooms this morning, and many classrooms were decorated with different crafts from his various books. 

Dr. Seuss has always been my favorite author so of course I had to do something to celebrate today. One of my favorite quotes from him is, "Today you are you! That is truer then true! There is no one alive who is youer then you!" I shared that quote with first grade and we made self-esteem cat in the hat masks! I asked them to reflect on what their favorite qualities are about themselves, and what makes them unique. They then wrote three of them on their hats! 

In friendship groups we talked about qualities that we need to be a good friend and wrote those on our hats. Both sets of masks turned out adorable! Here are some pictures from our birthday celebrations today...

This week is also national Read Across America week AND Hamagrael's no TV week. If you are participating in no TV week make sure to bring your slips to be entered in the raffle.  Turning in your slips gives you a chance to win a $8 coupon for our book fair that we have going on this week! Don't forget to stop in and check out all of our books while they are here.
