Lakeview joins schools across the nation
in celebrating Reading on Dr. Seuss' birthday!

"A person's a person, no matter how small," Theodor Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, would say. "Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted."

Here's how Lakeview School celebrated Read Across America Day 2001!

A Great Day for Up
The first time I read this story the children noticed I said "up" a lot of times. On another day I said, "Wouldn't it be fun to find out exactly how many there are?" so I read it again and they made a tally mark on their own white board every time I said "up." What a fun way of making tally marks and counting by 5's! -Mrs. Jones

Hop on Pop
At the end of the book there is a page with 4 lines of letters without any spaces that spell words from the book. Another day, as the task in our morning message, I copied the same letters on my large whiteboard. The children used their own whiteboard to write as many of the words as they could recognize. It surprised some how good they were at finding the hidden words. -Mrs. Jones
Fun Activity- Cut out a square of bubble wrap for each child. Every time they hear a word that rhymes with **** they get to pop a bubble and at the end if they have any bubbles left they get to "hop" on their square to "pop" all their bubbles.

A Dr. Seuss Poem
How did it get so late so soon?
It's night before it's afternoon.
December is here before it's June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?


Tune: Skip to my Lou

Hats on people in the sun,
Hats on people on the run.
Hats on people in a band,
Hats on people on the sand.

Hats on people every day,
Hats on people when they play.
Hats on people at the fair,
Hats on people everywhere.


The Cat in the Hat
Tune: The Addam's Family

The cat in the hat (snap fingers) snap! snap!
The cat in the hat snap! snap!
The cat in the hat
The cat in the hat
The cat in the hat snap! snap!

He causes so much fun
But when the fun is done
You will be the one
To send that cat AWAY!

Repeat chorus


Dr. Seuss on the Loose
Tune: Old MacDonald

Dr. Seuss is on the loose
And this is how we know.
Cats, hats, eggs and ham
Cats, hats, eggs and ham
Cats, hats, eggs and ham
We love his fun books so!


If I Ran The Zoo
Tune: Did You Ever See a Lassie?

Have you ever see a ________, a ________, a ________?
Have you ever seen a ________, that lives in the zoo?

Start with creatures from the story and then
have child make up their own nonsense names.
