Education Students Celebrate Dr. Seuss Day
at New Prospect Elementary School
Twenty-six Anderson University elementary/early childhood education majors entertained kindergarten and first grade students at New Prospect Elementary School on March 11 by acting out the stories of Dr. Seuss on what is known as Dr. Seuss Day. AU’s College of Education, which has been putting on this annual event at various local elementary schools for the past nine years, began the event in conjunction with Read Across America, a national effort to emphasize the enjoyment of reading.
AU students participated in Dr. Seuss Day as a part of the Literature for Children class, which is taught by Professor Lynette Pennell, instructor of education at Anderson University. “AU students dress as Seuss characters and present some of Dr. Seuss favorites in very engaging ways,” say Professor Pennell. “The children and AU students love it! We try to provide students with a fun-filled afternoon that they will never forget! The AU students do a fantastic job.”
