Read Across
America Day


March 2 is Dr. Seuss's birthday. It's also Read Across America Day -- the perfect time to turn a whole day's focus to reading across the curriculum! You'll find some timely ideas for special reading activities in the Education World article Special Reading Fun for Read Across America Day.

If you're looking for additional ideas to spice up a read-in in your school, you might plan one -- or all -- of these events:

  • Produce a Reader's Theater play.
  • Decorate classroom doors as books. Conduct a "Book Walk" to view the decorated doors.
  • Hold a school wide "Vote for Your Favorite Book" election.
  • Build a trivia contest around students' favorite books and book characters.
  • Play a whole-school game of Book and Author BINGO.
  • More activities for Read-In Day.
