4TH GRADE PROUDLY CELEBRATES READ ACROSS AMERICA DAY AND DR. SEUSS’ BIRTHDAY!
March 2, 2011 was a very special day in 4th grade. Dr. Seuss’ birthday is marked annually by Read Across America Day. In anticipation of the special day, the 4th graders created Cat in the Hats and other items. Mrs. Trotta’s class chose to create a bulletin board, while Miss Heisler’s class used their hats and cats to decorate themselves. Mr. Ellison from BOCES opened the festivities on Read Across America Day Eve with a dramatic reading of Green Eggs and Ham. Each year, Miss Heisler and Mrs. Trotta invite parents to read to their classes. This year, parents volunteered to read, as did school staff including Mrs. Rose, Mrs. Morsch, and Superintendent, Mr. Dufour! Hannah Mayr and Hannah Jennings earned special recognition for winning Miss Heisler’s Dr. Seuss poster contest. Students in both classes had a chance to write about their favorite Dr. Seuss books. During the afternoon, Mrs. Trotta read Bartholomew and the Oobleck and did an exciting oobleck science lab with her class. Miss Heisler’s class headed down to Kindergarten where they assisted students in making books, read to them, and shared some of their favorite rhymes. The teachers, students, and staff have wonderful memories of our special day!
