While I knew most of the facts, I didn't know all of them. I am looking forward to sharing some of them with my kiddos on Friday! I also like to give my kids time to read in their "comfy nooks" (our reading spots where the students each get a pillow or blanket to lay on while they read.) Last year the kids and I decorated our classroom door based on our read aloud The Sign of the Beaver. This year I am planning on having each student create a new book cover of the book they are currently read, or have just finished, and we will use those to decorate outside of our classroom.
What do you like to do for Read Across America Day?
