JKHA Says ‘Yom Huledet Sameach’ to Dr. Seuss

The JKHA Lower School had a great day celebrating this prolific author and their love of reading with stories and projects. The reading buddies throughout the grades got together for some special Dr. Seuss reading time. Mrs. Ruth Digiovanni, JKHA Early Education Director, engaged the youngest students in nursery and pre-k with reading some beloved Dr. Seuss books.

The kindergarten classes seized the opportunity of Dr. Seuss’ birthday to incorporate a cross-curricular learning activity into their classrooms. The classes have been reading many Dr. Seuss books in honor of his birthday. The English and Hebrew teachers came together and did a read-aloud of “The Cat in the Hat” in both English and Hebrew. After careful observation of the covers of both books, the teachers each took turns reading a line of “The Cat in the Hat”; one line in Hebrew and the next line in English. The class then made a Venn diagram of the similarities and differences between the Hebrew and English stories. What a fun and engaging way to celebrate such a prolific author!
