Yesterday (March 2nd) was national Read Across America Day!
A holiday celebrating my favorite pastime? Whoohoo!
And better yet, I’ve found a way to easily incorporate activities for my kids into this wonderful holiday, via the Dr. Seuss site.
I may have been too distracted yesterday with setting up a new laptop to replace my well-loved laptop that finally died on me, BUT that doesn’t mean I can’t celebrate it today. Or every day, for that matter.
My girls and I read every night, and often during the day, too, but at Seussville.com I found a free downloadable Read Across America activity booklet that gives you ideas for expanding upon the readings of Dr. Seuss books.
How cool is that?
It’s technically a classroom activity guide, but that doesn’t mean you can incorporate the ideas into playtime at home. Some examples include using The Foot Book as inspiration for dancing and different ways to sing based on verses and characters from One Fish Two Fish and Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?
There are many more activity ideas and even a printable certificate for the kiddos. So check out the Read Across America activity booklet and let me know what you and your kids liked best!
