Pennsylvania schools celebrate Read Across America


Hundreds of schools across Pennsylvania joined in a national celebration of reading and paid homage to Dr. Seuss as part of NEA's Read Across America Day on March 2. 

Read Across America is only once a year, but educators encourage students to become better readers year-round. Partners for Public Education is working year-round to encourage kids of all ages to pick up a great book and read. Partners recently produced three new reading resources - each geared toward preschoolers, elementary school students, and teen readers. Each handout offers tips to get kids reading along with age-appropriate book recommendations.

Go to www.partnersforpubliced.org/Reading to find copies of handouts and materials to share with colleagues, parents, and community members. PSEA members can also email partners@psea.org to request larger quantities of handouts.

Highlights from this year's Read Across America celebration: 
Share photos of your school or classroom's celebration by sending them to partners@psea.org
