Students across the nation celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday and National Read Aloud Day March 2.
Students and staff at Shields Elementary participated in a number of ways, including dressing up as their favorite Dr. Seuss character and reading their favorite Dr. Seuss books.
Kindergarten teacher Nicole Anderson’s class made green eggs and ham. Students read Dr. Seuss’s “Green Eggs and Ham” and then together made scrambled eggs, adding drops of green food coloring to give them the green effect. Anderson cooked the eggs for the students while they enjoyed the video version of “Green Eggs and Ham.”
Other schools throughout the Cape Henlopen School District celebrated as well. The Child Nutrition Staff made special lunches including roast beast, foodles with noodles, grinach spinach, truffula fruit mix, and green eggs and ham wraps.
