Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss.

March 1, 2013


Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss’ birthday.

The NEA initiated Read Across America to mark the occasion.

This is my first year that I can’t celebrate it with my students.

Kindergarten and first graders and I would make stove pipe Cat in the Hat hats.

And I got to share my favorite Dr. Seuss book. His last. Hooray for Diffendoofer Day.

I send this out to all of my students and colleagues.

“All schools for miles and miles around
Must take a special test,
To see who’s learning such and such -
To see which school’s the best.
If our small school does not do well,
Then it will be torn down,
And you will have to go to school
In dreary Flobbertown.”
