March recap and door decor!

I know Easter is quickly approaching.  Our Spring Break was last week and we only get 4 days with the kids to do Easter activities.  I hate that it is such a short amount of time this year, but I really enjoyed the break!  The first two weeks of March our school celebrated literacy with Dr.Seuss.  We had a door decorating contest, family literacy night, and dress-up days.  It was a ton of fun.  I wanted to share some of the awesome doors that our Kindergarten hallway created!

I worked with the teacher across the hall.  We love decorating our doors and the wall between our classrooms.  In the past we have made an Indian village, a Gingerbread house, Chick Chicka Boom Boom trees, a huge Magic Tree House display, and other seasonal or literary themes.  We ave an awesome idea planned for the beginning of next school year.  We wanted to bring my favorite book to life by creating a huge Yertle the Turtle display! The kids made Yertle's and turtles and labeled everything Yertle ruled.  
Here it is:

 The turtle stack was 3-D and Yertle was falling off the stack!

 Here are the doors covered with everything Yertle ruled (birds, bees, cat, trees, air, house, blueberry bush, donkey, cow, butterflies mud puddle)!

It was a lot of fun and looked great.  The kids loved helping to create the wall.  Here are a few of the other Kindergarten doors!   

Hop on Pop.  The kids faces are on the little characters and the bubbles have rhyming words in them.

Here is the Lorax- The kids made a little Lorax and wrote they speak for the trees on the sign.
