I love special days where the world stops and everyone finds a spot to drift away into their chosen genre. It is Read Across America day in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday.

during our Reading time tells me just how engaged my students were in this magnificent celebration! Yes, we have more writing lessons and activities to catch up on tomorrow. Yes, we have objectives that we still need to go over. Yes, yes, yes!
But for one hour...
one glorious hour.....
our world stopped for a book! It was well worth the reschedule of a few lessons!
On another note...our school also Read Across America by wearing something that we can read! Below are how my awesome students participated!
