It's time for Seuss Celebrations!!!
Near and far. Here and there. I see Seuss things everywhere.
It's that time of year again!!! All things striped and rhyming are decorating classrooms round the country! Here's a photo of a bulletin board in a program I visited a couple years back during one of my earlier Author-in-the-Schools visits. LUV LUV LUV LUV it!
Awesome "process-for-product" resulting in a collaborative display for their hallway bulletin board. Just exactly what I've addressed so often in other articles and issues here on my blog, as well as in my contribution to our collaborative blog over at PreK + K Sharing. It is indeed possible to engage in 'process' and end up with 'product' all the while respecting the child's own unique efforts.
How do we allow children the opportunity to create within the confines of an expected outcome? Behold one more idea. Let them create/cut their OWN stripes. Let them assemble their own stripes. Let them be in charge of their stripes! Dr. Seuss would be proud. Again, with the paper plates! Look at those INDIVIDUAL faces!
Look at the details. Do you see the 'springs' they have each created? Those too are unique!!! As is each child.
Speaking of PreK + K Sharing. Our article today is by Laura and its a round up of all things 'round the
blog-o-sphere on Seuss!!! Click right here to get to her list of tons of ideas appropriate for your center, school or library. I know you'll be happy for the research she's done on your behalf.
All hearts return to the simple picture books of our childhood.

I have a whole interesting portion regarding
Dr. Seuss and the making of teacher lessons for re-sale.

It's so exciting to be coordinating this post with a Network of Kid's Bloggers from around the world. I can bring you a glorious BlogHop of all 'things' Seuss.
