Students in room 122 celebrated Read Across America week by inviting guest readers into the
classroom to share their favorite stories. One of our favorite stories was There’s a Wocket in
my Pocket by Dr Seuss. This silly rhyming story has characters called Wockets that are found
in different places throughout the main character's home. After playing games to identify and
produce rhyming words, students used their imagination to create their very own Wockets!
Throughout the week, the students also worked in small groups to build and read giant Dr.
Seuss puzzles. This may seem like an easy task, but building a puzzle of this size required the
students to use their memory skills to remember shapes, colors, and parts of words on pieces
as well as communication skills to strategize how to complete it together.
Read Across America week was a fun week of reading, learning and cooperation!
