This has been an exciting week! Dr Seuss was definitely on the loose at Prairie Valley. Students enjoyed a visit form "The Cat in the Hat" himself. I guess you could say he took over the school. We found him answering the phone, cooking lunch, driving the bus, building in the shop, and even sitting at the principals desk.

Students enjoyed a book reading by The Cat in the Hat and a balloon launch to celebrate Dr Seuss' birthday. My kindergarten class made and enjoyed green eggs and ham after reading the book Green Eggs and Ham. We discovered just how many "feet" tall we are, made our own Cat in the Hat using construction paper shapes. We played "The Cat in the Hat I Can Do That". Each student completed a glyph of the Cat in the Hat which we displayed in the hall for other students to enjoy.
