Celebrating Dr. Seuss ~ Five For Friday Style!

Happy weekend!  Last week was a whirlwind of activity!  I'm excited to tell you all about it!

Last weekend, the temperatures were quite mild, and now it's blustery and quite cold ~ perfect time for a cup of tea!

 Morning Messages

 I tried to stick with the Dr. Seuss theme all week:

I'd really like to visit Springfield, Massachusetts to visit the Dr. Seuss sculptures!

 Dr. Seuss Door Decorating

 This year we decorated our classroom door like this:

Each student decorated a balloon and wrote what they wanted to be when they grow up.  One of the more popular career choices:  You Tuber!   You can check out this hot air balloon project here.

Book Fair

We had the Scholastic Book Fair last week:

The kids love shopping for new books, and I managed to receive several "gift" books from very generous parents.

I am a huge "Beauty and the Beast" fan so I was quite entranced with this book by Cynthia Rylant ~ definitely worth checking out!
The Map Lady Visits

The kids loved making their maps of Woburn, and they came out beautifully!

Before the actual map-making, the Map Lady, aka Susan Pietrantoni talked to the third graders about maps and showed them her extensive map collection:

Later in the day, she visited the classroom, and the kids made their maps:

I love how the Map Lady explains how the compass rose added value to maps years ago ~ this information inspires the kids to design fancy compass roses.
The One and Only Rosemary Wells Is Visiting My Public Library Next Saturday!

I go to my library every weekend.  While there today, I saw this sign:

I am a huge fan of Rosemary Wells and her books.  Plus, I collect books signed by the author.  Click here to learn more.

That's all for now ~ I'm so happy you stopped by for a visit!
