Third Grade “Bracketology” with Dr. Seuss

In honor of Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’s birthday, the third graders had a little battle of the books.  The first lesson was learning how to fill out a bracket.  (They are now ready for March Madness – at least when it reaches the Sweet 16).  After each student completed their prediction bracket, 4 books were read each day, discussed and votes were counted.  It was fun to hear the excitement, if their book moved on in the bracket and it was even a good lesson to learn, about an upset, when their book was defeated in the voting process.  We really enjoyed reading all 16 books and it sparked great conversations about similarities and differences between the books and why some have a “different author,” Theo. LeSieg, and illustrator.

And the winners are: Mrs. Clark’s class The Lorax, Mrs. Elliott’s class The Lorax, and Miss Neben’s class Fox in Socks.
