Students celebrate love of reading – Dr. Seuss turns 100



***image1***Sembach Annex was awash in whimsical red and white hats as the students at the Sembach Elementary School participated in the nation’s largest reading event March 2.
Read Across America started in 1998 and is sponsored by the National Education Association.
Each year on the anniversary of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, the nation’s readers celebrate through special reading activities. This year was particularly special because it was the “Seussentennial,” Dr. Seuss’s 100th birthday.
Sembach ES celebrated the “Seussentennial” with “Hats off to Dr. Seuss.” The entire school, kindergarten to third-grade, created the trademark hats to wear as they participated in various fun reading activities.
Special activities included guest readers, posing for a picture with a Dr. Seuss cut out, reading games, math games, making – and of course, eating – “green eggs and ham.”
At the end of the day, students had photos and memories of the celebration with their “friend,” Dr. Seuss.
