Larsen Elementary is celebrating the birthday of one of our favorite authors today. Dr. Seuss books are loved by everyone and have brought so much joy to readers. Each class this year made a video of them reading some of his books and shared them with the school. We had videos of "Oh the Places You'll Go", "One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish", "The Cat in the Hat" and of course, "The Grinch". There were many others also and we even had green eggs and ham for lunch. Dr. Seuss we love you!
Dear community partners:
Join us in sharing the news – PBS KIDS Utah is celebrating 20 years of the Writers and Illustrators Contest! This year’s theme is Celebrate the Great Outdoors. The contest is an initiative that fosters imagination and creativity in young artists and writers. Every year, PBS KIDS Utah invites children K-6th grades throughout the state to participate.
I want to support your efforts in this year’s contest. Please reach out to me if you are interested in hosting writing workshops or if you have a fun idea to get the kids in your area excited about submitting a story. I would be happy to send PBS KIDS goodies as incentives to you, your students, and your patrons! You can start promoting the contest by displaying and distributing the enclosed/attached posters and entry forms.
I hope you will join us in bringing the love of reading and the joy of self-expression to children in your community. If you are interested in being involved, please contact me using the information below. PBS Kids Utah Writers & Illustrators Contest information can be found at www.pbsutah.org/writers.
