Read Across America

Read Across America week starts March 2nd, 2022

Read across America day

 

Well Beagles, it is that time of year again and we are super excited to host our 4th annual Dr. Seuss Multicultural Read Aloud!
Due to safety concerns, this event will be held virtually.

See below for details!


 

Every year we celebrate Read Across America week and Dr. Seuss’ birthday with a Multilingual read aloud with his books printed in languages other than English. Due to safety concerns, this year’s event will be a virtual one, utilizing FlipGrid to create read aloud videos at home. Then these videos will be shared with the entire school to view online.

This virtual event will be held the week of March 1st, 2022

 

Here is how it will work:

·        Parents/students express interest in participating and sign up for a book in their home language.
          Contact me for a list of titles and languages.

·        Once you are signed up, we will check out the book in English AND the chosen language (to the student), then deliver to the child in their classroom

·        Parents/Students will record themselves on FlipGrid reading the books (tutorial on how to do this will be shared later this month-once we have sign ups and books are distributed)

·        FlipGrid videos will be shared with all classes the first week of March, 2022.

If you would like to participate, please contact me no later than: February 25th, 2022

Questions? Feel free to contact me with any questions: shgordon@lwsd.org

I am so excited to continue to celebrate our students’ culture and language while reading these classic, fun books!
