that’s all about making mistakes and growth mindset. I ordered the book as the parent was reading it!
Then on Wednesday (our last day of the week due to snow) we enjoyed Pink Ink (pink lemonade) reading “Happy Birthday to You!” I know Dr. Seuss’ birthday was on Monday, but this was the least expensive snack to ask a parent to send in 50 of. 😉 Each Wednesday, we have 3rd grade reading buddies that come read with us. In the words of my littles – “Wednesday is the best because of extra PE and Reading Buddies.”
At the beginning of last week, we started a school-wide data collection project. Due to the snow, we’ll continue the project this week. We asked each students in our school (~750 students) to choose their favorite Seuss book below. Even if only half of our school votes, we’ll still have plenty to talk about! It’s been fun to watch the graph grow throughout the week, as well as, to make sure we had read all the books before we placed our own votes! Also, from a teacher’s perspective, this was the simplest bulletin-board EVER – book covers, blue painters tape, garage-sale stickers, and a sign/email asking friends to vote. BOOM.
