Take a little reading break or use this game as a reminder earlier in the week that Read Across America is coming. Everyone gets an attempt or two to “pin the egg on the ham”! The student who gets the closest gets a special prize for Read Across America Day.
Have the students create customized eggs with construction paper and markers to add a craft to your day too!
Want to continue to boost the excitement? Make it a pajama party Read-A-Thon! Here is a good example of a send home note for parents with some great ideas on what students should bring with them to school.
Did you know that there is a Read Across America Song? How about a Read Across America Oath? Follow the links below to find both on the National Education Association web page. These additions will really help you set the theme for the day!
