Celebrating Dr. Seuss!

 Dr. Seuss!   Thank you for your wonderful, wonderful, WONDERFUL books!  They are fun to read aloud; and supertastic to listen to......
And here is a new app to listen to reading!




This app is perfect for early readers!   Click on the picture above to see this new app!  

One of my favorite Dr. Seuss books is
The Lorax


The Lorax is a fun and entertaining book.  Dr. Seuss teaches that nature and natural beauty is important to the world.  "I speak for the trees"  
Great book, great read aloud!  This book would be perfect to celebrate Dr. Seuss, an accomplished writer of children's books.  The so many lessons Dr. Seuss teaches in his writing.  You might read his books during the whole month of March.  His wit, humor, and rhyme are extraordinary.  The Lorax can also be a springboard for writing about 
Earth Day or the environment.












HERE is a sign for your classroom  from The Lorax!
