Read Across America Week


It's Read Across America aka Dr. Seuss Week in Texas. This week we are celebrating by wearing something each day that represents a Dr. Seuss book.                                                                                                                                                      
I wish I could post pictures of my students here.  They were so cute this week all dressed up.  Instead you get pictures of me. Except for crazy sock day.  I can post pictures of their feet. Ha!                                                                                                                                                                      
Monday was The 500 Hat of Bartholomew Cubbins. We wore a hat/cap. It was awesome not to have to do my hair that morning.

Tuesday was crazy socks day for Fox in Socks. We had some awesome socks! Can you guess which socks are mine? :)                                                                                                                                              
Wacky Wednesday! We wore mix matched clothes. Some of our teachers and students really got into it! I got some good ideas for next year. 

Thursday was wear red, white, and blue for Cat in the Hat.  Students wore their regular uniform with their red, white, or blue polo type shirt.

Friday was Oh, The Places You'll Go, we wore college shirts. I wore this shirt a couple of years ago at a different school. One of the paraprofessionals (she has since passed away) said "I know you didn't go to that school."  I didn't know if I should be offended because she didn't think I was that smart enough or just laugh... because she's right.  I chose to laugh.                                                                                                       I brought my personal copy of Oh, the Places You'll Go because my library doesn't have it.  Some family friends who I kid-sat for for two summers gave it to me when I graduated high school back in 1995.  The wife wrote a very touching poem and glued it to the inside page of the book.  I read it this morning to myself.  I was telling 1st grade about it.  They asked me to read it out loud.  So I did.  And I teared up. Something about hearing the words out loud really touched me.  What a special gift!


  1. What a fun week! Love the pictures.

  2. Sounds like a fun time! And it amazes me how much a Dr. Seuss book can say about life. 😊

  3. Dr. Seuss' work is genius. I'm so glad y'all had so much fun celebrating!
