Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss


March 3, 2015 - 12:00 AM

Iola elementary students honored the beloved author Dr. Seuss’ birthday Monday. Dr. Seuss, whose real name is Theodor Seuss Geisel, was an American author for children’s books. He was born on March 2, 1904, and died at the age of 87 on Sept. 24, 1991.
 In celebration of the 2015 Read Across America, classrooms will feature a different Dr. Seuss book each day of the week.
Monday, students wore hats and today they will wear location shirts for “Oh, the Place You’ll Go!” Other days involve pajamas, overalls and socks.
Lincoln Elementary librarian Tammy Prather said on Friday the students did a reading challenge Read the Most from Coast to Coast. They took 1,788 Accelerated Reader tests.
