Reading Across America!

What an exciting day!  In celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday and Read Across America, we have some lively reading activities happening in our school.

The seventh graders in Mrs. Wilson's class connected with another group of seventh graders in Kentucky to share their favorite books, what they are reading in Language Arts, and some fun facts about their respective states.

Some of our eighth graders also had a chance to shine and inspire the love of reading in some younger students.  They were the stars at an elementary school in North Carolina.  Their Skype reading of  both Oh, The Places You will Go! and Green Eggs and Ham was broadcast to the entire school!  The elementary students were also curious to learn more about Wisconsin and New London after they finished reading.

Finally, our book club, Lit Masters, met to discuss this month's book selections.  We had lively and interesting conversations as usual.

Thanks to all of the students who participated in our reading activities today and promoting literacy throughout America!
