Week of February 23 in the Media Center

It has been a very busy week at Highcroft. We celebrated Read Across Highcroft on Friday, had a Character Ball in third grade, and it was Crazy Hair Day!
Dr. Seuss books have been flying off the shelves in preparation for Read Across Highcroft. The teachers go to different classrooms to read and do activities in order to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday. March 2 is Theodore Seuss Geisel's read birthday. If he was still alive he would have been 105. My favorite book I read to classes is Thidwick the big hearted moose. He has such a big heart but is taken advantage of by many different animals who begin to live on his horns (antlers). Of course he remembers that all horns fall off each year so new ones can grow. We also accessed to read about his early life, his career and how he became the author of so many books. After learning more about Dr. Seuss...we visited the "playground" online.
