The NEA's Read Across America Day is coming March 2nd. Every year we celebrate big the whole week! We celebrate with theme days, buddy reading, author visits, contests and more. Below are some ideas from years past.
This will be sent home tomorrow.
Last year, students guessed the number of bookworms to win one of these two awesome reading baskets. We had a primary and intermediate basket. This year we'll be guess goldfish for the book "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish".
Students will also be caught all week reading. Students caught reading will be reported each afternoon and one lucky winner will be chosen to win a 10 dollar Barnes and Nobel gift card.
We also have a very creepy Cat in the Hat suit that our sweet counselor wears to greet the kids.
These are some fun activities we've completed during the week.
Truffala Tree Snacks.
Turtle stacking after reading Yertle the Turtle.
And we'll also have a visit this year from Steve Harpster. He's one of our favorite authors and illustrators. If you you haven't had Steve visit, you should. Not only do the kids love him, but he gives 30% of the proceeds of his book sales back to your school. He's pretty incredible.
