Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2 - Dr. Seuss' birthday. The event's state sponsor was the Georgia Association of Educators. Robeson County teachers and students will be engaging on Thursday in parades, skits, and songs acknowledging the joys of reading and the characters or ideas from Dr. Seuss' book.

Barrett, who was elected to the LUSD board in November, also read to students Tuesday at La Honda STEAM Academy as part of a series of "Read Across America Week" activities. "Cleaning that up would take all night". The Cat in the Hat will read a story and pose for photographs. The Cat was hands up among Seuss' favorite creations among students at all three schools, followed by the Things, the Lorax and Sam I Am.

Students in other school wore silly hats, silly socks, and shirts with words throughout the week.

Coronella said of the event. Alyssa Longobardi played the exasperated fish to Katrina Eagan and Payton McKillips' Thing 1 and Thing 2.

Shaw has her own special memories of Dr. Seuss books. "We want them to come in, see the books, judge them by the cover, and open them up". If students can't read, they'll have trouble all day.

Junior Hunter Hargrove, who read "A Mother for Choco", said he felt there was another message hidden in their visit, too. Lee Elementary third-grade scores from the past five reading tests administered through the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System indicate that only about half or fewer third-graders have been reading at or above grade level.

"It's a good group of kids, and a lot of help", she said. Kids can get a taste of green eggs and ham, all while listening to rhymes like a poetry slam.

"It's always a pleasure to visit the young students at Live Oaks Elementary School". The collaborative program has been designed to help raised needed funds for The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum, while creating a sense of ownership and pride in Springfield students as they learn about the importance of philanthropy and community involvement.

Reading interventionist Barbara Berk said the school takes great pride in encouraging pupils to read.

Pat Kibbe, Temple Elementary School teacher, reads "What Pet Should I Get" by Dr. Seuss to a classroom full of students.
