Saturday Snapshot--March 5, 2011

This meme is hosted by Alyce from At Home With Books

To participate in Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken. Photos can be old or new, and can be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. All Alyce asks is that you don't post random photos that you find online.

Last Wednesday was Dr. Seuss' Birthday. Each year we celebrate the day in my library by having one of my teacher-colleagues read Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham. Phil was an actor so he does a fabulous job doing voices and making the reading lots of fun. He gets the (high school) students involved doing noises, sound effects, etc. We ended up with about 60 of us listening and participating. What a great way to spend a lunch time!

If you'd like to see the video, you can see it here (my library website)

What a fun idea -- I bet the kids love it!

Trish said...

Dr Seuss is best when read out loud. Although his illustrations are always a lot of fun too :)

Debbie said...

I used to work in a school library... I miss it very much. How lucky you are!

Karen Harrington said...

I love all the Dr. Seuss celebrations going on. My daughter's had a similar one at their school this week and it just lights them up and makes them eager readers. :)

Connolly-Ahern, Sherrie--The kids did have a great time, which is fun since they like to act as if they are cool high school students.

Trish and Sassy--you're right, Seuss out loud is great

Debbie--I'll bet you miss your job!

Karen--That's funny, my daughter didn't mention any events and she is at an elementary school!

Bermuda--I was pleased as well, 60 high school students is pretty good

Bev--You can see the video at http://www.smroyals.org/pages/San_Marcos_Senior_High/Library/Library

Diane--Phil gives a little history of the book as well before he starts, which is really fun

This is a wonderful photo! Can you believe that I've never read Dr. Seuss?

Alyce said...

That sounds like so much fun! We always remember Dr. Seuss's birthday in our house because it's my husband's birthday too.

Aths--Okay, you need to march right down to your nearest library and read a couple Dr. Seuss books. No need to check them out since each will only take you about 5 minutes!

Alyce--Somehow I think your husband's Birthday probably trumps Dr. Seuss' :-)
