WUES celebrates Read Across America Week, honoring Dr. Suess

Students at West Union Elementary joined millions of their peers across the country in celebrating the 18th annual National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America Day on March 2. NEA’s Read Across America Day, celebrates Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the joys of reading.

It was expected that more than 45 million readers, both young and old, picked up a book and read. To honor the good doctor and celebrate the fun and value of reading,West Union Elementary students and staff participated in a variety of activities. Grades K-6 were asked about their favorite books and they were displayed for all to see in our cafeteria. Several grade levels designated special dress-up and activity days based on Dr. Seuss’s beloved books.

During Read Across America Day, students were treated to celebrities from the Screen Actor’s Guild reading books aloud through their website. Many other classrooms had special guest readers share their favorite books.

Our goal at WUES was to show all students the joy of reading and build a community of readers not just on March 2, but every dayof the year.
