Second grade rappers, guest interviews, video books, games and commercials! That sums up how we celebrated Dr. Seuss' Birthday. The students gathered in the multipurpose room first thing in the morning to celebrate with an assembly coordinated by Christina Toti, one of Brewster School's reading teachers. Dressed up as the narrator of "Oh the Places You'll Go," Christina led the second graders dressed as Thing 1 and Thing 2 in a short rap session.
Students watched a video of the Brewster staff reading their part of "Oh the Places You'll Go."
Invited guests were interviewed about the interesting things they have done and the places they have been. Dr. Veronesi talked about her life in Africa while Jeff Landry discussed how he always loved to cook and his desire to become a chef. Trooper Schlicker talked about what he liked to do before becoming a trooper and Cheryl Forbush demonstrated a short dance with students and talked about her love of dance.
Mr. Edwards provided commercial breaks by having students show off their balancing talents, then challenged the Cat in The Hat (Principal, Nancy Heckler) to a balancing contest. Mr. Edwards wont the contest and will be Principal for a Day later in the school year.
The morning culminated with each student making a wish or a dream and releasing their balloon.
