Read Across America Celebration Week

Week of March 4th-8th

Hey Everyone!

            The week of March 4th-March 8th we will be celebrating Read Across America (Dr. Seuss’ Birthday).  

            During the week, we will have a different theme for each day.  Each morning, I (Ashley Ducharme, Reading Specialist) will read a “snip-it” from a “Mystery Dr. Seuss book.”  The book will coincide with the theme for that day.  At the end of the announcements, the kids can drop off his/her guess of what the mystery book was, and I will pick a winner for each day. The winners will receive a Barnes and Nobel gift card purchased by the PTO.

            To continue with tradition, students will be enjoying a slice of birthday cake in celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday.  The cake will be enjoyed on Tuesday, March 5th during lunch time!

             I will be sending home a list of fun places that students can get “caught” reading.  Parents will send in a picture or email a photo of his/her child reading at home or at a fun place.  We will hang the pictures up for all to see.  As an incentive, I will pick a photo each day and that lucky winner can pick out a book of his/her choice from me!  The photos will be hung up on a bulletin board by the gym.
