Each February, our school chooses a genre or an author to be the focus of our I Love To Read Month activites. This year, Mrs. MacKenzie planned several events to spotlight Dr,. Seuss and we continued the theme in oour classroom. Every day, there was a Library Lotto question about Dr. Seuss or his books asked over the intercom. Some of our classmates were able to answer the questions and won a prize! Dr. Seuss's books have been made even more famous in movies like Horton Hears a Who, The Grinch , and The Lorax. Many of the old cartoons are on You Tube as well.
One of his books we read in class was Wocket in My Pocket. Here is video of someone reading it from YouTube. It gave us the pattern to create a creature that rhymes with our name. We looked carefully at this and other books to see how he created his artwork and we used markers to colour them brightly. Here are some of our creations.
Next, we did some creative writing about the creature we drew and used our best cursive writing and spelling to make a page for display. They are posted in our room, come in and have a look!
