Happy Birthday Dr Seuss!

I got to spend the day at a different school today since I am on Mid-winter break. I had a BLAST! My mom works in the special education classroom so that is where I spent the majority of the day. But I did get to read with one adorable little kinder.
They did a one hour read-a-thon. So they invited parents/grandparent and volunteers to come in and read with the kids for that hour. (Note that this school has a TON of volunteers. I live in an area where lots of people come to retire so then they end up volunteering in the schools. There are lots of grandma and grandpa so and so's helping out in classrooms all the time.) It was PERFECT! Kids either wore pajamas or came to school dressed as their favorite book character. I think the Lorax costume was my favorite.

So I spent the day reading, watching the Lorax movie (not the new one but the animated version of the book that I bought at costco yesterday), helping with in the Special Ed classroom and visiting with the staff.  So here are a few pictures that don't show faces :)
(UPDATE: Just a little side note. This is not the school I work at. I work an hour away from home this is the school in my town.)

My little reading buddy and I. (awkward picture of me but oh well)

I loved all of the bulletin boards!

kids who's parents couldn't come or that didn't have an adult had an older student to read to them.

My mom made this board free hand...

Watching the Lorax. They loved it!

One fish, two fish, red fish...
Hope everyone had a FABULOUS Seuss day! Two Seuss day's for me in one week means I need a nap.
