Read Across America Week

I’m pretty excited about this coming week. As the reading specialist, I’m in charge of our Read Across America celebration.  This year we’ll have spirit days, giveaways, an author visit and some rewards for readers.  
Each day teachers will be submitting names of students who are “caught reading”.  I’ll be choosing a name at random to win a $10.00 gift card to Barnes and Noble.  A few will be given away throughout the week.  Students will also get a chance to win a “Book Basket”.  Students will get a chance to guess at home many bookworms/gummy worms are in the jar.  The student in K-2 and 3-5 that guess the closet will one of these baskets. 
We’ll also have a visit from author Emily Morgan.  If you haven’t read her book Picture Perfect Science, you should.  It’s a great teacher’s guide full of science lessons that are paired with picture books.  Not only does she have books for teachers, she also has authored many great books for kids.  
We can’t wait to have her.
