Read Across America
R.A.A. Week - February 28 - March 4, 2011
The National Education Association (NEA) annually sponsors Read Across America. Approaching its eleventh year, NEA's Read Across America focuses the country's attention on how important it is to motivate children to read in addition to helping them master basic skills.
NEA launched the Read Across America program in 1997. The nationwide reading celebration takes place each year on March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss, who epitomizes a love of learning. Dr. Seuss's use of rhyme makes his books an effective tool for teaching young children the basic skills they need to be successful.
This year Los Amigos will begin celebrating Read Across America on Monday, February 28, 2011. We plan on students taking the pledge, writing about reading, and having community members and parent come into the school and share their love of reading with the students. Read Across America Day is Wednesday, March 2, 2011.
