Is a BRIBE worth your time?


Have you ever volunteered to be in charge of something and then wondered why you did, right after? Well, the last week of February / first of March is our Dr. Seuss Spirit Week and I signed up to take charge. We've haven't done this before the my "co-captain" AKA the person who is normally in charge or this sorta stuff isn't excited at all about it. So I basically volunteered because I want the students to have a blast celebrating Dr. Seuss. Thankfully I have you guys to help me out! I'm using a lot of our fun activities from Rachelle's Dr. Seuss unit. {Thanks, Girl!}


I do have a favor to ask of you guys though...That week we're supposed to have a "Family Reading Night" and I need some great ideas. One room will be a "Royal Reader" reading some classic Dr. Seuss and another room will have some parents doing face painting. I need around three other rooms where parents and their children can join in on some fun, easy Dr. Seuss based activities that would be fun for K-4. I'd appreciate ANY and ALL ideas!

As my way of saying thanks for you help I'm also throwing in a GIVEAWAY! I bought this great Dr. Jean CD a few months ago just to be used for a giveaway, but I was waiting for the right moment and this just feels right :o)

You could do a snack room where the families go to up together some Dr. Suess themed goodies like the life saver and icing hats.

My district has a Family Reading Night and in several rooms we have local "celebrities" reading books such as members of the high school football team, the mayor, and police officers. The kids love to sit and listen to these people read.

Why don't you have a contest for dressing up! not sure if this is what you were talking about, but each family that dresses up as Dr. Seuss characters could have their name put in a hat. Maybe get area businesses to donate prizes and you could do 1, 2, 3 place? All participants could earn a homework pass for their child? If you have a snack, there is a really cute one with ice cream and ice cream cone. have you seen the one that looks like Cat in the Hat?
