Stories, Seuss brought to life at Westminster Elementary School

On Read Across America Day, Lydia Salveson's kindergarten class celebrated in Seuss style to also commemorate the birthday of children's book author Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. They read "Cat in the Hat", and wore red and white clothing with hats on Tuesday and they read "Wacky Wednesday", and came to school with mismatched clothes and insane hair Wednesday.

"Every day we had a theme for the kids to participate in", said Ashley Skinner, Title 1 teacher at Little Hocking Elementary School.

The students spent about an hour and a half of their day at the elementary school.

Registration is not required for the Dr. Seuss birthday celebration. Photographs and information on the dress-up days will be posted on the school's Facebook page.

According to Tingley, many people work together to ensure the event goes smoothly. "I always tell the kids, 'Read, read, read, and write, write, write.' You have to do that in lots of different jobs, and I want them to understand how important it is". "They also take turns dressing up in a Cat in the Hat costume and visit the classrooms".
