WacKy Wednesday!

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!
In honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday on March 2nd, Ashaway School enjoyed a very "Wacky Wednesday"! The fun day began as the students assembled in the gym after getting off their busses. They were surprised when the teachers switched spots and the "wrong" teachers brought them to class! Each visiting teacher enjoyed a morning meeting with a bunch of new faces before returning to her own classroom. All day long the teachers and students got to show off their fabulous outfits, dressed in their wacky best! (Go to the school photo album at to see some very silly shots! This is a picture of our music teacher, Mrs. Sherman, outside the door to the library.)

In the library, there were LOTS of wacky things for the students to find. How many can you find in this picture? It's okay to ask a student to help! :)

In library class, I used my new IPEVO USB camera to project the pages of "Wacky Wednesday" onto the SmartBoard so that all the small details could easily be seen by the students. The children took turns going up to the board and tapping on all the wacky things in each picture. They loved watching the pointer jump to the spot that was touched, and it was a lot more fun to be able to share the book in an interactive way!
