Read Across America

The staff participated in Read Across America Day theme--"Dr. Seuss Day."
This year, our school celebrated Read Across America Day (also Dr. Seuss Day) by having two large group read-a-thons in the cafeteria/gym.  There was a morning session and an afternoon session.  Each session began with me reading aloud a Dr. Seuss book.  I chose to read The Cat in the Hat Comes Back to the first group.  The kindergarten students still think that Little Cats A-Z were in my hat!  The second group was entertained with Oh the Thinks You Can Think! 
Sharing a good book.
Students brought their book boxes and a blanket or beach towel and spread out after the read aloud to do some reading of their own.  Teachers moved from child to child to share books.  Each session was an hour in length, and at the end of each session I had several students ask if we could do this again some time.  It was very rewarding to see over 500 kids engrossed in books and enjoying the shared experience. 

We love to read at MME!

Spreading out to do some reading!
