Classrooms Celebrate the Legacy of Dr. Seuss

Posted: Updated:

Dr. Seuss books continue to stand the test of time.

Courtney Plante takes us inside the classroom for more.

 

These kids enjoy reading and the places it takes them.

 

"I get to see books that I've never seen before and read interesting things,"said MyKaela Jorgenson, 1st grader.

 

Each student was reading a different book -- and there was many others still left on the shelf.

Which ones are their favorite? Let's find out the answer.

 

"One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish," said McKenzie Blowers, 1st grader.

"There's a wocket in my pocket,"said Isaiah Johnson, 1st grader.

 

From Cat in the Hat to Green Eggs and Ham -- Dr. Seuss is the man.

Read Across America day celebrates his legacy -- and the feeling he leaves in hearts of many.

 

"I think Dr. Seuss will live on forever. He was a great author, illustrator and poet. And the way his books rhyme and have such good patterns I think they are going to stick around forever,"said Shannon Knutson, 1st grade teacher.

 

Knutson chose this theme because it's fun for the kids.

She says reading is a gift that teachers can give.

"If they can read, they can do anything,"said Shannon Knutson, 1st grade teacher.

A love for adventure is what these kids share -- and Dr. Seuss books take them there.

Reporting in Bismarck for KX News, I'm Courtney Plante.

Knutson's students get to wear their pajamas and bring in their favorite book next Monday to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday.
