To celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday, the William Elementary transitional kindergartners invited guest speakers to come into their classroom to share their favorite books.
The students wore their pajamas to school and brought blankets and stuffed animals for story time during Read Across America.
This year’s RAA theme was Reading Takes You Places. School and Community volunteers who participated were K-3 principal, Denise Conrado, who read “I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly”, Roger Hawk, who shared a felt-board story about “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”, K-6 principal, Jennifer Foglesong, who read “Llama, Llama, Time to Share”, Ulises Vega, a stuendents father, who read “The Little Blue Truck”, Chris Stoots, another father, who read one of his son’s favorite books about the Ninja Turtles, and Mike Charter, volunteer fire fighter, who read “Fire! Fire!”
Teacher Barbara Mayberry would like to thank each person for sharing and participating in this year’s Read Across America activity.
“These special readers shared some great books,” said Mayberry, “and the students enjoyed listening to each one.”
Read Across America is an initiative on reading created by the National Education Association. It is observed on the school day closest to March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss.
