If your class is celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2, then you definitely want to sign up for the Dr. Seuss Word Challenge. In this third annual competition, readers log the number of Dr. Seuss books they read from March 2-6 for the chance to win amazing prizes.
The grand prize winner will earn a class party, classroom makeover, student costumes, and library of Dr. Seuss books
There are prizes for runners up, too, including a Dr. Seuss plush, costumes, and books. Whoo hoo! Plus, don’t miss the chance to read the Dr. Seuss “Book of the Day” with classrooms around the country.
