Dr. Seuss? An incredible man . . .

Dr. Seuss is a wonderful author to study, because the themes in his books can be simple or complex. In the fall of 1996, I used his books to start the year in a first grade classroom. In this wiki are links to other Dr. Seuss sites and a booktable showing what my first graders did as we did an author study on him that fall ! Enjoy the past, as together we create the present. . . .

Welcome to the wiki

"And To Think That I Saw It On My Way To School"

This is a protected educational wiki designed to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss, using the very first children's book he wrote,
And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street

In true Seussian fashion, this project demands that students look at the world around them differently than they have before, seeking out marvels that previously went unnoticed, and then engaging others in their newly found appreciation through words and images. The idea is to have kids look on their way to school, (as Marco did in the book) and find marvels in their world. They can then take a digital picture of what they see, or draw or paint it and then upload it for others to see. Teachers will create one page for all of their student work, titling each picture "And To Think That I Saw It On My Way To School"! The big ideas are the verb to see and the cadence or rhythm of the words.
