It’s the first day of March – AKA Reading Month – and it’s going to be an exciting 31 days, starting with Day 2. Tomorrow State Representative Sharon Tyler will be visiting the whole 3rd grade at Sylvester Library from 9:00 – 9:30.
The following week, March 7, is World Read Aloud Day. Go to the events tab for more info on that. Week three includes Reading Day of Action on the 15, and the 16 is the deadline for the Young American Poetry Digest contest (go to the opportunities page). I also know that Jen McFarlane is inviting guests to come to her classroom to read to her third graders. What a great way to promote reading!
Be sure to check out the photos of staff favorite books, hanging up on the library walls.
But Most exciting, during our last week of school is the Scholastic Book Fair. I’ll be posting more about that soon on the events page. I’m looking for parent volunteers. Teacher, remember to promote as well! The Scholastic Book Fair is such a wonderful opportunity, because it’s all about encouraging reading and getting CHEAP books into the hands of our kids!
Fun fact: this Friday (March 2) is Dr. Suess’s 108th birthday – and also the release date for the movie of his book, The Lorax.
