Dr. Seuss Day
The purpose of this event is to encourage students to read and to celebrate an amazing children’s book author! Normally, the event lasts an hour from 2:00-3:00 P.M. at Lebanon Grade School. Classes from pre-K through 5th grade participate. Students read a Dr. Seuss book and do a craft that ties in with the book. Then, if time permits, the McKendree students read more Dr. Seuss books to the grade school students.
Dr. Seuss Day is normally on March 2nd at Lebanon Grade School.
Why would I want to do that?
"I love seeing how excited the grade school students respond to the Dr. Seuss books. I also love seeing how the volunteers react to rereading a book they used to read as children. I also love how it teaches children that reading can be fun and that cool activities can go along with books. Books aren’t boring!" ~Krista Waltermire
Anything else I need to know?
Volunteers need to wear kid-appropriate clothing.
