“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go”. – Dr. Seuss
Dr. Seuss was selected as the theme for our second reading lounge. Our team of first grade teachers and parents really did a great job putting this all together. Again, Ikea of West Sacramento helped with the design and donated all of the furniture. OSH donated the paint and supplies.
For this lounge, we had a special “reveal” for kids on live TV. This room was covered up and students did not have access to it for a couple of weeks. We wanted the first time kids saw the room to be recorded on live TV. Good Day Sacramento, a local morning show, came out and featured this reading lounge. They recorded a few segments and one was the actual “reveal” of the lounge to students. For some reason, we could not locate that clip. If you are curious to know how the kids reacted to seeing this lounge for the first time, it could be described as “shocked and excited”. We do have the introductory segment. Check it out here.
