Dr. Seuss’ stories came to life at both Marshall and Bryant Elementary schools last Friday, March 1st. In celebration of Theodor Seuss Geisel (better known by his penname “Dr. Seuss”) and his birthday, the Tutoring Centers put on a Dr. Seuss event for our students.
“Celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday annually is a clear way to message how important reading and literacy development is,” Maria Rassiwalla, program director at the Marshall Tutoring Center, says. “Alongside the rest of the nation our Dr. Seuss Read-a-thon uses rhymes as an entry point to show kids reading can be fun!”
At our event, in addition to reading and acting out stories, special snacks were served, hats were created, and laughter and fun could be heard and seen throughout the school.
We would like to send out a special thank you to all of the volunteers who came out that day in support of our program and our students’ literacy. We could not have pulled off such an event without your help. We hope you had as much fun as we did!
