Schools, volunteers celebrate Seuss with reading

Schools, volunteers celebrate Seuss with reading

William Gutierrez, a member of Downey Unified's Board of Education, embraces Dr. Seuss as he reads one of his books to an excited classroom at Gallatin Elementary School on their Day of the Reader in honor of Read Across America on Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2017. It wasn't his first time coming to a school to read to children - he used to do it in high school for the kids in his area growing up in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, he said.

No matter what the activity, Kary said the books reach every generation. Photographs and information on the dress-up days will be posted on the school's Facebook page.

UCSD is also showcasing materials from its Dr. Seuss collection.

Students Maley Gerrnger, 6, and Kate Albertson, 7, presented her with red and white flowers.

The students are proud of the school, and as readers they're well-versed. According to Tingley, many people work together to ensure the event goes smoothly. So we have costumes, we have teachers dressing up, we have instructional aides dressing up.

Newman was pleased that most enjoyed the breakfast. "Having the older students come in can be something positive for them".

He has played the confident ladies' man, the tortured amnesiac, the self-deprecating hero and the inspirational mentor. Yes, we become sad and regret in life but nothing to the degree that owns this man (his character in the film).

Doup's class spent the entire day on Suess-themed activities, eating "Truffula Tree seeds" for a snack, writing biographies of Geisel and answering trivia questions to test their comprehension of the books they had read. "One lady had a tiger in the baby stroller", he said. "Reading is very important for every aspect of life". "I guess it's not any different than any other day in school", Tingley explained.

As part of the program, children ages 4-12 who read a set of five books will receive an achievement award and voucher for a free hamburger or cheeseburger.

Santa Maria Police Department Officer Rafael Torres read "Green Eggs and Ham", a classic Dr. Seuss book, to a classroom of attentive first-graders.

"Anything we can do to excite kids about reading is great, as far as I'm concerned", Burkhardt said. They'll have a literacy parade through the school's hallways from 1:15 to 1:30 p.m. Students can dress up as their favorite storybook characters.

"We wanted the kids to have fun while also keeping things simple", Wahl said.

Crawford, who read to fifth graders, turned the reading into a lesson on visualizing what one reads, asking students to close their eyes and use their imaginations to create pictures in their minds.
