Read Across America 2017
In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2, Parent-Child Home Program sites across the country took part in Read Across America, a national celebration of reading. Reading some great Dr. Seuss books, being Dr. Seuss characters, and doing Dr. Seuss themed art projects, PCHP families had lots of fun celebrating reading and one of America’s greatest children’s authors!
Here are some of our Seussians!
PCHP’s site in Worcester, MA enjoyed reading The Cat in the Hat on their home visits, and held a Dr. Seuss-themed Family Literacy Night.
PCHP’s site in Easton, PA held their annual Dr. Seuss Breakfast. This year’s theme was the classic “One Fish Two Fish”. Twenty children colored and glued fish onto fish bowls, enjoyed a pancake breakfast with parents and siblings, and listened to Miss Marci Nunez, a PCHP Early Learning Specialist, read this parent and child favorite.
PCHP’s site in New Bedford, MA celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday with some of his great books, and of course by wearing the iconic hat from The Cat in the Hat!
Families read Green Eggs and Ham, Fox in Socks, Are You My Mother?, and Ten Apples Up on Top!
PCHP’s site in Riverside, CA enjoyed the day by encouraging parents and children to create Cat in the Hat art projects together!
PCHP’s site in Charleston, SC celebrated by taking taking their families to the library, where they held a Dr. Seuss birthday celebration! “It was a very special time for everyone” said PCHP Site Coordinator, Carolyn Trammell.
Children at PCHP’s site in Stoughton, MA had a great time making and coloring their Cat in the Hat hats, whatever colors they thought the hats should be!
