Students throughout the Lindenhurst Union Free School District celebrated national Read Across in myriad ways. The day honors the birthday of the late Dr. Seuss, author of many famous children’s books including “Horton Hears A Who!,” “The Cat in the Hat!” and “There’s a Wocket in My Pocket!”
Lindenhurst High School student council members recently organized an event in which high school students volunteered to visit the district’s elementary schools and read to the young students. Additionally, they shared Seuss-themed stickers, bookmarks and word searches with classes and gave each student in the class a certificate of participation in the day.
At Lindenhurst Middle School, many teachers served as guest readers and acted out various stories, essays and poems throughout the day for students. A variety of Dr. Seuss books were read, along with other selections. Additionally, seventh-grade students in the Family and Consumer Science classes prepared Green Eggs and Ham.
Students in Lisa Cognato’s first-grade class at Albany Avenue celebrated the author through a series of academic Seuss-themed centers to reinforce skills such as comparing and contrasting, writing number sentences and solving problems, and following directions. At the end of the day, students enjoyed a special “Thing One and Thing Two” treat.
