Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life March Challenge

Librarian Melissa Armentor as Cat in the Hat and Coach Regan as Sam I am. Fun picture day!

This week was Dr. Seuss week at two of my three schools.  Each day had a theme.  The walls were covered in Seuss-inspired art and quotes.  At one school, the librarian was in costume each day.

Fun dressing up as Dr. Seuss characters.

On Friday, I sat next to Chloe, a 2nd grader, to help her write her second post for the March Slice of Life Challenge.  She wanted to write about Dr. Seuss week.  She is a huge fan.  As I looked at blue feathers circling her head, I knew this was going to be a fun slice to help her with.  She told me that her favorite book is “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.”  Using some of the ideas from this book, I suggested she write a poem.

We collaborated on this poem but most of the words came from Chloe.  I just typed them into a poetic looking form.

Dr. Seuss books are lots of fun.
You can read them in the sun.

Dr. Seuss books are the best thing ever.
They can trick you. They are clever.

Dr. Seuss books are kind of silly.
Like the one with crazy Billy.

Don’t know that book? Have some fun
And write one!
