Read Across America was celebrated during the week of February 29 to March 4 in schools across the United States. One part of the initiative is National Read Across America Day, which is held on the school day closest to March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. The students in Ms. Elisabeth Richardson’s class made their own plans to commemorate the special day.

“We cooked green eggs and ham, watched a video, read books, made The Cat in the Hat hats, and made activity worksheets for math, science, and language arts,” said freshman Zoe Blair.

The students prepared the meal, which included pan-frying the ham, dyeing and scrambling the eggs, and setting the table.

“Green eggs and ham were my favorite,” said junior Michael Bridenbaugh, who helped prepare the eggs.

Richardson gave credit to Media Specialist Ms. Jan Duckro for coming up with the project and helping the students with their creations.

“We decided to do Dr. Seuss because his birthday was this week – Wednesday, March 2 – so we looked for some fun Dr. Seuss activities to do,” said Richardson.

The students embraced the Dr. Seuss theme.

“I do like the idea because it’s really cool, and I feel happy because I like books,” said Blair.

Most of the students are ready for Dr. Seuss’s birthday to come around again.

“I hope we do this next year,” said Bridenbaugh.

Richardson, who transferred to the high school from the middle school this year, said the special activities commemorating Read Across America were a success, and the eggs weren’t too bad either.
