Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!!

Today we had a school-wide birthday party for Dr. Seuss!
Mississippi Public Broadcasting helped us celebrate with a precious Seussy program complete with the Cat himself!  

They gave out goodie bags for the kids AND the teachers, too! 
The student goodie bags contained a book, bookmark, pencil, eraser, and notepad, all Seuss themed! 

And get this, ALL teachers and K-2 students received a Cat Hat!
Did you know the Cat had his own Boogie?? 
Well, we learned the Cat Boogie today!! What fun! 

We continued the celebration in our class with Seuss-inspired Friday treats! 
I asked the parents to send the ingredients and let the kiddos do all the work! 

We made Red Fish, Green Eggs and Ham, and The Cat's Hat! 
My sillies loved it and kept saying, "This is the best day!" 
Don't you love those days?? I'll definitely do this again next year!

We had a little extra icing as you can see! 
Why waste it when the kids will eat it???

Before Seuss Hat pics:
Love to see them get comfy and read!!

We had a lot of wild and fun hair! 
This precious one is actually a VERY athletic boy! 

So engaged in the book-Love!

Sweet friends reading together! 
Our 5th grade had a fundraiser today for their class trip.
Hence, the Sprite!

First grade teachers: Don't you love this time of year when your babies can sit and read independently?? Love it!!
