March is the famous Dr. Suess's birthday! To celebrate such a birthday, March has been known as National Reading Month! It also provides a month to celebrate the joy of reading. This year, ASA has chosen a theme of growth: Knowledge is a seed that grows when you read!
There are a handful of celebrations throughout the month of March to celebrate March is Reading Month. Lower Campus students will again be able to submit reading tickets to enter into our bike drawing. We have to extend a huge thank you to Kiwanis Club for donating two bikes for this drawing! At the Upper Campus, students can turn in their reading menu board for drawings of snacks and gift cards!
This month also includes comfy clothes day, bingo for books, and dress as a book character day. Our Lower Campus classrooms may also have various other fun events such as reading buddies, mystery readers, and pi day math literacy celebrations. Make sure to check out our Facebook and Instagram throughout the month to see pictures from these events.
This year, we've been bless with Mrs. Jill Ott as our librarian who has put together various fun lessons in Library. At the Upper Campus, they are learning about various genres and have been doing a novel study in grades 6-8. At the Lower Campus, they just completed a study about the Caldecott Medal. Students are even noticing illustrations in other books, according to Mrs. Ott. Mr. Ott's lessons continue to help our student's literacy knowledge and growth throughout the entire school year.As Dr. Seuss said, "The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go." We hope everyone has a wonderful March full of reading!
