Looking for fun weekend activities? Check out Read Across America...

February 28, 2013

Mark your calendars!  Friday March 1st is the National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America Day.  Read Across America is an annual reading awareness and motivation program that usually falls on or around Dr. Seuss’s birthday (March 2nd).  The purpose of the event is to get children excited about reading as research has shown that children who spend more time reading perform better in school.  The National Education Association offers some great tips for parents as well as a variety of resources related to reading to use on Read Across America Day and throughout the school year.  Check them out here:
