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 to find copies of handouts and materials to share with colleagues, parents, and community members. PSEA members can also email to request larger quantities of handouts.

Highlights from this year's Read Across America celebration:
