The Makings of Seussville...

We are going all out for our week in Seussville. We have planned the week according to a rotation system; each first-grade classroom will feature a different Dr. Seuss text, and the students will visit each class throughout the week. We followed the same process for our "Christmas Around the World" unit in December, and the students really loved it then.

Our classroom will focus on the Dr. Seuss text Fox in Socks. We modeled our door after the design of the text itself. I cannot take credit for the actual images; I have an INCREDIBLE assistant who made the large-sized characters and images to decorate our door and hallway outside our classroom! See the images below for a sneak preview of the outside of the classroom.

I love, love, LOVE the use of a clothesline in hallways or on bulletin boards. My class will create their own crazy socks to hang on this clothesline.

Also, we found the perfect spot to display our large "pair" of synonyms and antonyms feet!

More to come from the our work inside the classroom... ;)
