Wednesday, March 5, 2014 Is World Read Aloud Day

The first Wednesday of March each year is World Read Aloud Day. I encourage you to read aloud with your students that day, and to encourage your parents to read aloud with their children as well. This might be something you could promote in your newsletter.
