Dr. Seuss Week

This coming week we will be enjoying a lot of Dr. Seuss inspired fun to celebrate his birthday and several good, silly books! I have created a plan for the week that includes writing, reading, math, science, art, cooking, fun and more. Thought I'd share it here and then throughout the week we'll share how the day really went. This is the basic plan, but as we discover more we'll go with it - so I am leaving some room for this. As well, we will be finishing up the week with attending a local children's theater's production of Seussical the Musical... so fun!
