'Read Across America' 2016 Arrives
Every year, on March 2nd, the National Education Association (NEA) celebrates Dr. Seuss's Birthday as Read Across America Day. We've assembled a few online resources to help you celebrate Seuss-style and to encourage families to read together.
- Dr. Seuss Crafts Roundup from PBS Parents features adorable, low-cost craft ideas for the early learner!
- Are you a busy parent and short on time? PBS KIDS has compiled this online Reading Activity Calendar full of simple, easy ideas for you to incorporate at home!
- Co-watch The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! on WSKG TV (Monday-Friday at 1:30pm) and follow up with an online game. Be sure to check out the 'parent tips' section.
- The National Education Association has great booklists, tips and even grants that schools and communities can apply for.
