Read Across America Day

Happy Read Across America Day! We started this special day by reading with our third grade buddies. The kindergarten students read their Home Reading Books, while the third graders read a Dr. Seuss book.

Lower School students were encouraged to come to school dressed like a character from a favorite book. Take a guess which characters came to school today….



(Fancy Nancy)

(Queen Susan from Chronicles of Narnia)

Of course, we spent some extra time reading today! Recently I started a new read aloud: The End of the Beginning: Being an Adventure of a Small Snail (and an Even Smaller Ant) by Avi.

“Avon the snail has never had an adventure. And adventure, he has heard, is the key to a happy life. So with his new friend Edward the ant, Avon sets out on a journey to find the excitement his life has been missing. This modern fable is filled with funny–and profound–insights about the meaning of things . . . great and small.” -Amazon
The students are loving the ant’s and the snail’s  adventures so far! Today was the perfect day to read several chapters in a row to really get them hooked!
