Now, I bet you were thinking
from the title that this post
was going to be about
dressing for school?

I love to dress the part, as much 
as I have can, when I read stories
 to the students.

Here is Fancy Nancy reading 
one of her stories to her friends.

I didn't have a picture of 
The Cat in the Hat 
(either of them)
reading so I included
the whole class picture.

This one is just plain, old me....
with a skunk on my head....
reading The Easter Bunny's Assistant.

Here is a teacher from
long ago with her students
in a one room school house.
I (I mean, she) read from
an old school primer.

Just a little 50th day of school fun!


Wacky Tacky Day!
Tacky the Penguin

This one isn't me,
though it's my costume.
I just can't put that 
head on mine...


Last one I can find 
in my pictures!

Do you dress up? 
I'd love to know how!

Quick Tip!

Set your laminator on the edge
of the table facing a chair!
Saves a step when you are laminating
a bunch! The pages pile up nicely on
the chair and you don't have to pick it
up and move it to put the next laminating
sheet in!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. That's so neat!! It's really awesome how you bring literature to life in your classroom! I know your littles will remember those experiences forever!! We dress up for School Spirit Days or for special 'kindergarten' days, like the 100th Day and Dr. Seuss's birthday. Thanks for sharing such great ideas, they look like so much fun!!

    Warmest Wishes,

  2. I am so impressed. I primarily wear my pajamas to school once a year for Polar Express Day, but that's it. I'm now inspired and will have to think of some more "get-ups." I bet your children just love it.

  3. I bet you are the teacher all the kids want! Looks like lots of fun in your class!! I only dress up if it is a school-wide event going on. I was Pete the Cat for Halloween and read aloud day.

  4. That is wonderful. The one day I dressed as a Jedi is a favorite of mine. Now I have even more ideas!
