March 2nd marks the birthday of legendary writer and cartoonist, Dr. Seuss, who is known for illustrating approximately fifty children’s books with the likes of “Green Eggs And Ham,” “The Lorax,” and “Horton Hears A Who”. Students from the Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy celebrated the author’s birthday by dressing up as some of his well-known characters, including the Grinch and the Cat in the Hat. The cartoony characters went door-to-door, visiting a handful of classrooms where many enticed students were waiting. Some classes have been reading Dr. Seuss books as a group, making the celebration relevant to the student’s reading activities.
Students from Bernadine Tso’s primary class smile brightly with the Cat in the Hat, The Grinch, and Thing 1 and Thing 2 from the Dr. Seuss storybooks.
Primary teacher, Bernadine Tso, gives a warm hug to Dominique Rael who is dressed up as Thing 1 from “The Cat in the Hat” books.
