Read Across America...A Worthy Cause!

As a 2nd grade teacher, I really like this project. We have some fun activities planned for this Friday, March 2nd, Dr. Seuss's birthday.  It is so important for adults, to encourage our children to read EVERY day! Some children don't have access to books. This program funds grants and other resources to motivate kids to read. I feel like it is a worthwhile cause. Read more about, Read Across America, down below.

 

About Read Across America:

NEA's Read Across America, the National Education Association's award-winning literacy program, focuses the nation's attention on how important it is to motivate children and teens to read in addition to helping them master basic skills.

NEA launched the Read Across America program in 1997. Its signature event, NEA's Read Across America Day, takes place each year on or near March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss, who epitomizes a love of learning.

NEA's Read Across America calls on every community to celebrate reading not only on Dr. Seuss's birthday, but all year long. Read Across America provides NEA members, parents, caregivers and students the resources they need to promote literacy, including grants, downloadable materials, activities, booklists, and a monthly e-newsletter.

Help NEA’s Read Across America build a nation of readers:
NEA’s Read Across America is dedicated to helping children and teens read--but we can’t do it alone!
Your donations—small and large—help us create programs and materials that keep kids excited about reading.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your generosity!
1. Kids who read--and are read to--do better in school and in life.
2. The National Education Association asks every community to celebrate reading not only on March 2, Dr. Seuss's birthday but all year long.
3. The award-winning literacy program provides resources, activities, grants, and partnerships to encourage kids and teens to read, read, read.
