Miami Trace Elementary School’s (MTES) fifth grade team is getting ready for literacy month with a week of Dr. Seuss.

Literacy month is March and Dr. Seuss Day is March 2 as that was the author’s, Theodor Seuss Geisel, birthday. It is a nationally-celebrated day for literature spanning all ages.

According to Suzanne Arthur, a MTMS fifth grade teacher, the fifth grade team started their school week by having green eggs and ham for breakfast on Monday morning. Each class then read the Dr. Seuss book, “Green Eggs and Ham.”

Tuesday, the theme is “Silly Hat Day,” which is being based off “The Cat and the Hat” by Dr. Seuss.

Wednesday is “Wacky Wednesday” where the fifth grade students are encouraged to dress mismatched or wacky. The day’s theme is based off the Dr. Seuss book also titled “Wacky Wednesday.”

Thursday is “Crazy Feet Day.” For this day, students are encouraged to wear mismatched or crazy socks and/or shoes in relation to the Dr. Seuss book, “Fox in Socks.”

Friday will have the theme of allowing students and faculty to dress like a favorite Dr. Seuss character.

“We just like to get them excited about reading and encourage them to read in any way that we can,” said Arthur. “Dr. Seuss’s birthday is a good way to encourage them to be excited about fun books.”

Arthur further explained that literacy month will kick off for the entire school next week as they will all be reading the same book.
