Read Across America- March 2nd

Will you be reading 'across' America? Did you also know it's Dr. Seuss's birthday too???!! (It really is Theodore S. Giesel's birthday on March 2nd)... Is it just a coincindence??? Nope... Read Across America was purposely planned on Dr. Seuss's birthday because of his books and their ability to inspire children to read.

Schools across the country
celebrate this special day
by reading their favorite books
and dressing up in a funny way-
some will wear a crazy hat,
some wear their pajamas to school,
some dress up as Thing 1 and Thing 2...
so tell me... what special thing did you do??

The 4 silliest entries will receive a Lorax book and character- FREE- for their classroom!!!
(only one entry per classroom please!!!- remember to send your school address teachers!)

Last school year we celebrated a "Read In Day" where I had all the students where their pajamas to school, bring in their favorite Seuss books, a blanket or sleeping bag, some even painted their hair red and white... it was great!! We had such a blast... I think we had almost every single Seuss book represented that day... and it was one of the most special days of my career!
