CBE students celebrate Seuss
Students at Copper Basin Elementary had “lots of good fun that is funny” last week. They have been celebrating Read Across America/Dr. Seuss’s birthday. The week has been filled with activities. Monday was Crazy Sock Day. Students and teachers rolled up their pants to show off their crazy socks. It looked like some of the characters from Seuss’s books were in the school on Tuesday, Crazy Hair Day. To show they are not “backwards” about reading, students and teachers wore their clothes backwards on Wednesday. Thursday they wore their favorite hats. Friday was Character Day. All dressed up as a character from their favorite Dr. Seuss book on Friday to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
Throughout the week daily “snippets” were read from Dr. Seuss books. A chosen selection from a book was read over the intercom and the first class to call in with the correct book title won a prize. Students also participated in Read to Succeed. Students turning in a reading log with at least 6 hours of reading will receive Six Flags tickets. Reading displays created during the week were judged on Friday. Prizes were donated by local businesses. Representatives from the businesses visited the school and selected a winner to receive their prize donation. They also read with students.
