Read Across America

In honor of Dr. Seuss and the joy of reading, students across the country are celebrated Read Across America Day on March 2.

At Central City Elementary, the students had the chance to dress up as their favorite book characters as they watched skits about the importance of reading.

Michele Bowling, the Curriculum Specialist, says: "I believe you learn through doing. I really think that's important."

The teachers hope by making reading fun it will show the children what they can accomplish as they grow older.

Bowling says: "We're in a small community, a rural area, we don't have as many resources as bigger areas and so they can learn lots if different things through reading."

The teachers also hope the students will remember this active lesson and carry it with them as they continue their education.
