Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2

Can you spare some time on March 2 to celebrate the birthday of the man who brought us the Cat in the Hat?

Read Across America Day is brought to us by the National Education Association (NEA).  Now, in it’s 13th year, Read Across America  celebrates Dr. Seuss’s Birthday with thousands of schools, libraries, community centers, and more participating by bringing together kids, teens, and books, and you can too!

I am challenging all family child care providers to grab your hat and read with the cat and make a pledge.

It is supper easy, and so much fun,

just click this hat and you are almost done.

Fill out some info, that’s easy to do.

Pledge for your kids, because you know you want to.

I am no Dr. Seuss, but here was my pledge.  Here at Little Scholar we will celebrate the week with Dr. Seuss and more.  I have many activities, and books galore.

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss.

Celebrate  with this quick and easy craft project.

The Cat in the Hat.

Why not make a hat.  You will need 1 large piece of white construction paper.  Red paint, for the stripes, and a paper plate.  Use  the  large piece of white construction paper and have students paint, color, or glue on red stripes. Cut “tabs” in the paper by making 1 inch cuts along the bottom and turn the tabs out. Cut the inside out of a paper plate. Roll the striped paper into a cylinder, insert the cylinder into the paper plate and staple the tabs of the cylinder to the paper plate. The plate forms the brim of the hat. Add a chin strap if needed.

Super Fun, especially after reading the Cat in the Hat.
