Local schools celebrate literacy

Celebrate Dr. Seuss at the library Schools celebrate Seuss on Thursday

The NEA expects more than 45 million readers to pick up a book and read on Read Across America Day.

Intervale School, along with many other schools in United States, celebrated Read Across America by celebrating Dr. Seuss birthday on Tuesday, February 28.

The event also commemorates the birthday of world-renowned author and illustrator Theodor Seuss Geisel, known as Dr. Seuss.

Geisel's definitive work, "The Cat in the Hat", was created with the directive from publisher Houghton Mifflin to use 225 "new reader" vocabulary words.

More than 30 student-athletes helped inspire Western Elementary School students to read on Friday morning.

Josh Kathriner, another 11th-grader reading to a first-grade class at the elementary school, agreed there are benefits of reading fun and interesting stories to young children. But third grade teacher Wendy Doup chose to let her students be the readers. The program promotes the importance of reading to school children. "They've really had a blast playing with all the games and especially the sack race".

Students were given three tickets and a passport to "travel" between several choices of readers and activities. They were a good group.

"To see their faces and watch their eyes as all of the little light bulbs come on as you're reading, it just makes my day", Kary said.

Should India Make Changes for the Second Test vs Australia?

And getting to share the love of reading with them is important, he said. Schools hold pep rallies to pump up kids about football, they thought.

Hedgecock said the school will read "Fox in Socks", and will be allowed to come to school wearing insane socks to celebrate on Thursday and everyone is set to wear green and read "Green Eggs and Ham", during the school's read-a-thon on Friday.

Students Maley Gerrnger, 6, and Kate Albertson, 7, presented her with red and white flowers.

"I love reading", she said.

"Our literacy nights have different stations for activities and the one in May has things students can take home to do over the summer", she said.

Sorrell said they were happy to volunteer their time and that reading is the basis for all learning.

A amusing book-or a farting dog-can still have a heartwarming message, he said. Lee Elementary third-grade scores from the past five reading tests administered through the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System indicate that only about half or fewer third-graders have been reading at or above grade level.
