Lincoln-Erdman Students Celebrate Read Across America Day
On Friday, March 2nd, students at Lincoln-Erdman Elementary School joined millions of other school-aged children in celebrating Read Across America Day in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. The event was planned by teachers Cheryl Meyer, Sue Mrdjenovich and Erin Lamb.
The day began with the singing of a silly Green Eggs and Ham song and the choral reading of the Dr. Seuss book, Green Eggs and Ham. After the story, the students had the opportunity to eat green eggs and ham prepared by the parents and teachers. Some students were apprehensive about trying the bright green eggs, just like the character in the book. Tyler, one of the first graders, was asked what he thought the eggs would taste like and he said “frosting.” He was surprised when they tasted like “regular eggs.”
The celebration ended with the students reading their favorite Dr. Seuss books with their friends. Mrs. Hayon, a parent who came in to help, said, “It is so cool to see the kids reading and enjoying Dr. Seuss books!”
