First, I collected a plethora of Dr. Seuss books from home, our school library, and I even picked up a few on sale at Target for $5 each. Students paired up with a partner and chose one of the books. They read the book with their partner and wrote a short book review and posted it on their blog. While they were reading their chosen Dr. Seuss book I went around and took their picture using the Dr. Seuss Camera app. Once all pictures were taken students found their picture in the Photo Stream via the iPad and uploaded the picture to their blog.
Here's a sample blog post:
Then they helped their Kindergarten buddies with a Cat in the Hat craft activity.
Two of the kindergarten teachers shared Dr. Seuss books with the entire group.
What a fantastic day!
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
