Students and staff at Wexford Elementary School celebrated reading with a variety of activities during Read Across America week leading up to Dr. Seuss’ birthday.
Teachers Katy Johnson and Darla Ferraro said that each day during the week, students and staff dressed in different themes to coincide with a Dr. Seuss book. On Friday, March 2, 2018, the students were treated to a succession of stations with Seuss-themed activities.
The art station was hosted by Dots and Doodles, a local art business, where students had the opportunity to create collaborative murals. Each student in kindergarten through third grade painted one square. The squares were combined into large canvases with images from the Seuss book covers. The final products now adorn the Wexford Elementary School Library.
Students also played Seussical games in the gym and then went on a virtual field trip to the Seuss Museum.
Librarian and GATE Teacher Maria McCormick said it was amazing to watch the children create such a large-scale project and to see the results.
