I Speak For The Trees

It's field trip day! The firsties and I are off on our way to see the movie Dr. Seuss' The Lorax at the nearby AMC theatre!



I'm just as excited as they are! After all, my fave Taylor Swift has a speaking role in the movie : ) To get ready for the big day, we read the story yesterday. Gotta love this little guy:

Then, I found the sweetest idea over at Fun In First Grade. It was a pattern for students to make their very own Loraxes! (Is the plural Lorai??) Anyway, here was my teacher example:


The firsties wrote all about how they, too, would want to save the trees! I took their little guys and made this fun bulletin board.

I just crack up at the mustaches:

The Truffula trees make me so happy:

Wish us a happy theatre experience! The kids don't know it yet, but there will be popcorn and Sprite awaiting them at the AMC! I'm fully expecting to hear the statement "This is the best day ever!" over and over again ; )
