Read Across America

Today we celebrated the birthday of one of the most popular children's book author of all times- Dr. Seuss!  March 2nd has been labeled "Read Across America" day in celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday and to motivate children to read.  Getting students engaged and motivated in reading is an important factor for life long reading success.

We held a "Camp out and Read" day today. Students read Dr. Seuss books inside a tent while eating S'more cereal.  The lights were turned off and students read using flashlights with night noises in the background (think crickets). The kids were so excited to go camping with many Dr. Seuss stuffed animal characters, too.
