Yesterday we celebrated one of my favorite days at school, Dr. Seuss Day! We paired up with one of the second grade classes, and had a FUN-TAB-ULOUS Dr. Seuss Birthday Party! We had so much fun! I got to
We also got to have some yummy treats at our party! The second grade teacher and I brought in these two super cute pinterest-inspired snacks! We had so much fun with it!
Green Eggs and Ham! (The "ham" is two pretzel sticks, and we got bigger marshmallows than what the website called for, so they were a litttttle large!)
Of course I am a loser and didn't get a picture, but here is the picture from pinterest. It looked somewhat like this, except I put the whole thing into a big "fish" bowl instead of individual cups!
And of course, to end our party successfully, we got to watch one of my FAVORITE movies!
LOVE IT!! Got it for 6.00 at Kroger! So excited!! :)
So that about sums up our way fun, and super successful Dr. Seuss Party! I love this day, and am so excited that I now have so many cute and creative lessons to share thanks to so many amazing teachers!!
Now, I wanted to end this post on a more serious note. Yesterday we had some very serious and violent storms in our area. If you live in the Ohio/Kentucky/Indiana area, I am sure you have already heard about it. My town did not get hit directly, but it affected several people at our school. A neighboring town got hit really hard, lost their high school. and several houses disappeared. I believe one person died in that town as well. Our fifth grade teacher lives in another neighboring town that got hit pretty badly, and lost everything. She and her two boys were in their tornado shelter, and their entire house got blown away, with them still in it. She and the boys and her husband are all ok, which is the most important thing, but my heart just breaks for them. I can't even begin to imagine what they are going through, and will be going through for quite some time. Also, one of the teachers at our High School lost her husband and house in the tornado all at once. I don't know all of the details, and really don't know the teacher that well, but my heart breaks for her as well.
So, I am calling on you wonderful, caring, sweet people to help me out. All of your thoughts and prayers would definitely be appreciated at this terrible time. Also, I want to do something for these women but don't really know what to do or how to go about it. Does anyone have any advice? This is such a devastating tragedy and I would love to do something to help, but I just don't know what to do. Any advice you guys might have for me would be MUCHO appreciated, and of course, your thoughts and prayers always help!
I hope you guys had a wonderful Dr. Seuss Day as well, and I look forward to reading about and seeing all of your fun activities for this wonderful day as well! Have a great weekend!
