Read Across America Week

Since it's Spring Break, I thought I would look back at some fun we've had the past few weeks-beginning with Read Across America Week.

This was by far my favorite Read Across America Week ever! Each day we had themed days like Crazy Hats or 8-Words-on-a-Shirt Day. It was so much fun! We also had a door decorating contest...and my class WON!

I used my Silhouette Cameo and a font called Dr. Soos to create the saying. Then I was inspired by this Valentine I found on Pinterest...and turned it into this!

The students created the cover of their favorite book using this template I made. They had so much fun! The final product was awesome! And it will definitely make a great keepsake for families.

I also made up some special Dr. Seuss-themed treats for each day. The kids were pretty spoiled by week's end. The string cheese was by far the kids' favorite and the easiest! All I needed was a red and black Sharpie and string cheese. I made 24 in a matter of minutes. I found the idea HERE.

Of course, we had to have Jell-O and Swedish Fish for One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.

An amazing parent packed bags of popcorn for Hop On Pop, and then we had Chocolate Teddy Grahams and marshmallows to represent the Brown Barbaloots in The Lorax. (I just need to work on getting pictures next year!)

But my favorite, by far, were these adorable Thing cupcakes!

I found red cake mix and shocking blue frosting at Walmart. I simply dolloped the frosting on and attacked it with a fork to make the spiky hair. They were the easiest cupcakes ever!

I also used my Silhouette Cameo to print and cut these fun labels for the cupcakes. It was so much easier than cutting them out individually. 

We did have a special reader come in, and we tried to squeeze in some Dr. Seuss fun in between our required curriculum. Brain Pop Jr. had a great video about Dr. Seuss, and the kids really liked it. However, you have to have a membership to view it.

We also had fun doing the directed drawing from First Grade Blue Skies. You can find the directions HERE. We ended up adding them to our winning door. They added the perfect touch.

All in all, it was a really fun week. What better than to top it all off with Dress as a Dr. Seuss Character Day! I have the best team ever! I made our shirts on my trusty Silhouette. 

I also loved the Teacher I Am shirt I made. This pattern and the Things patterns were purchased off of Etsy. I upload them to my Silhouette...and, voila!

I made this shirt last year, and it made a reappearance during our celebration this year. It's a fun one!

I can't wait to see what fun we'll have next year!
