Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
Usually in high school, librarians don't celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday. At Patrick Taylor this year, we certainly did. Members of Bookmarked, the library book group, worked in groups to select their favorite Seuss. Hands down it was Green Eggs and Ham. Then each group spent 30 minutes skyping with either a 1st or 2nd grade class at an elementary school cross town. The high school students read the books and asked questions. The elementary students first at Gretna #2 and then at Pittman were great listeners. We had a glitch with the technology during our 2nd session, but we worked it out. It was a fun activity for all the participants. Here are some of the pictures we took at Taylor.
