Renowned children’s author Dr. Seuss inspired a night of educational exploration at Northeast Elementary School. To celebrate the man born Theodor Seuss Geisel in 1904, the school hosted its annual Dr. Seuss Family Learning Night on March 1.

After playing sight word bingo in the cafeteria, students then rotated through various centers in the gymnasium. There was a bean bag toss with words and a charting activity with goldfish that focused on the mathematical concept of more than and less than. Children used do-a-dots to make hats inspired by “The Cat in the Cat” and took photos at a selfie station using Dr. Seuss-themed props created by the middle school art department. 

Volunteers from the National Junior Honor Society at Edmund W. Miles Middle School assisted the children. Librarian Tina Smith said that all students received a bag with activities they could do with their families at home to reinforce literacy and math skills.
