With Valentine’s Day behind us I’m in full planning mode for March and Literacy Week. I thought I’d share some of our fun from last year in case you’re like me and still racking your brain for a Read Across America Week idea! Honestly, my little friends loved this so much I may do it again this year…. And yes, we are HUMAN CANDLES! Oh, the squeals of joy!!
Literacy Week Door Idea
I snapped a picture of each of my kiddos wearing a hat that I made with a sentence strip and tissue paper twisted into a flame shape.I had to laugh at myself when it was all said and done because it would have been SO much easier to just glue a little yellow flame on their heads!
After a very funny discussion about all of the things Dr. Seuss has given us as readers as well as our fondest first memories of reading his books, we baked him a birthday cupcake!
Literacy Week Bulletin Board
Next, we used our birthday cupcakes to decorate our hallway and wrote about a gift we’d like to give in return. A lot of my students wrote that they’d like to write a book for him like he has done for them.
The responses were priceless about what they have gained from Dr. Seuss books!

Those cakes are adorable. I think the human candles are a hoot. This looks like really fun group of activities. Thanks for sharing!

I love the whole thing, I just put the activity on my TPT wish list 🙂
Here is my question to you…when are you going to start making clip art?? You are such a talented artist and extremely talented teacher! I love all this!
Mine too, Rachel, and my kids got such a kick out of it!
This is one of my favorite crafts! I am thinking I'll do the gigantic cake on my board this year!
