March 2, Brockbank Elementary celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday by having a school wide read-a-thon where students could silently read any book of their choice. In honor of Dr. Seuss, there was a drawing where students had a chance to win a Dr. Seuss book and by each door there is a poem in Dr. Seuss rhyme. For example, by the office for Principal Alison Hansen, there is a poem that says, "Our Principal Hansen is so reliable. Her concern for our students is really undeniable!" Celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday is a great way to get students motivated and excited to read!

Students had the opportunity to bring their favorite teddy bear or other stuffed animal to school to spend the day in class learning and playing with them. One activity they did together was playing math games and eating teddy grahams. When it was time for the students to go home, the teddy bears got to stay and have a slumber party at school. The next day when the students came to school they found out that their animals had made a mess in their learning centers.
