Read Across America Celebration

This year the PBIS Cadre and the Media/Technology committee are bringing together our annual poetry celebration and our Read Across America celebration. We believe this is a perfect fit because poetry plays such a big role in Dr. Seuss' books.

Feb. 27th Wear green to celebrate Green Eggs and Ham

Feb. 28th Show off your favorite funky socks for Fox in Socks

March 1st Wear crazy, wacky clothes for Wacky Wednesday

March 2nd Poem in Your Pocket Day

March 3rd Twin/Hat Day: Find a friend and dress like a twin to celebrate

Thing 1/Thing 2 or wear a hat for Cat in the Hat

March 2nd Poem in Your Pocket Day All students and staff should carry a copy of a favorite poem in their pocket. All through the day ask students and staff to share the poem in their pocket. (We will have stickers to wear that say Ask me about the poem in my pocket.) Classes will be paired, and the younger classes will visit the older classes to share their poems. Teachers should choose the best time for the classes to get together.

In most of my 2nd- 5th grade classes, students will have time to find a poem they like and make a copy of it. Teachers in preK-1st may want to choose one simple poem for all of your students. We have a large selection of poetry books in the library that you are welcome to check out.

March 3rd 1:30 pm Read Across Kirkman Park
Older classes will be paired with younger classes and visit their classrooms to read to them. Students will get in groups of 2 or 3 and read a book together. (I will have picture books available for those who need them.)

** Class pairings will be emailed Monday.
