Reading opens the door to the future for our students
Dr. Day Care celebrates Read Across America with guest readers.
By: Dr. Day Care
Our community is dedicated to working together to create confident, caring, and connected citizens who are informed and aware. That’s why we’re celebrating Read Across America 2015 – to encourage reading and foster appreciation and respect for the power of reading. Reading opens the door to the future for all of us! Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading in honor of the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss. The purpose of Read Across America is to motivate children to read. Research has shown that children who are motivated and spend more time reading do better in school.
Read across America is spearheaded and sponsored by the National Education Association (NEA) at the National Level with support from more than 50 national nonprofit and association partners. Locally, everyone-from schools to libraries to community centers to churches to hospitals to bookstores-is invited to host local events to celebrate and promote children’s reading.
Be a part of this reading excitement! Get involved in supporting children's literacy in our community:
· Since this NEA supported endeavor is designed to put every child in the company of a book, take the opportunity to read and enjoy! Read to a child in your life.
· Help set a good example. Contact a local preschool and volunteer with your child to share a story with younger children.
· Bring children to a public library. From story hours for toddlers to career planning for teens, the library has something for everyone.
· Make sure those who are in need have plenty to read. Donate books to hospitals and homeless shelters. Call ahead to see what is needed.
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.
-- Dr. Seuss
