Day 123- Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Today was cut short because of strong storms that crashed and bashed through Tennessee. Hamilton County closed one hour early, but I had to leave early to pick up my children from their daycare. (in Georgia) I split my class and they were dismissed from those classrooms.
Thank you, First Grade Team!

But, before things got ugly, we did have a good morning! We came in, read Horton Hears a Who, took spelling tests, and had 2 surprise Guest Readers!


I am only putting one of the readers on the blog today because the second reader is....  a Chattanooga Celebrity! He will be on the blog tomorrow as our very first Chattanooga Celebrity Story Saturday Reader!

Our reader for this post is one of our 5th graders!

He is in Ms. Corbett's class and he did a wonderful job! He read the story Gerald McBoing Boing.

I asked him to read this one because I had never heard it before! I'm slowly realizing that Dr. Seuss wrote more books than I could have imagined. I can see us using this book again when we review Onomatopoeia. (also, Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? is a good book for Onomatopoeia)

Check out the video {HERE} or watch it below!


I also found the cartoon on Youtube!

Everyone, stay safe tonight, and make sure to check back tomorrow to see our FIRST Chattanooga Celebrity Reader!
