Hi Member,
Let’s start with a quiz. Who said this?—“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”

Easy right?  Yes, it’s from the Dr. Seuss book  I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, this coming Friday, March 2 is “Read Across America Day.” Now, I’m sure reading is important in your classroom everyday, but back in 1997 the NEA declared Dr. Seuss’ birthday a day to celebrate reading. So, what the heck, let’s celebrate.

Here are three of my favorite core-aligned videos focused on reading.  And, this Friday, “Be awesome! Be a book nut.” (Another quote from the good doctor).

What better way to celebrate a work of literature than with movement? Get your kids up and exploring literary elements with their bodies.
How do you push students to pull the most relevant info from a text? See students lead a process that takes them deep into understanding the text.
Isn't that what we all want? Watch a teacher who uses a simple book to make a big point and uses one-on-one conversations to meet individual student needs.
