Celebrate Read Across America Day With Your Gifted Kids

Tomorrow (March 2) is Read Across America Day, sponsored by the National Education Association (NEA), and created with the intent of bringing the excitement of reading to every child in every community across the nation. The event coincides with the birthday of Dr. Seuss and features many events to celebrate reading.

Teachers and parents can get involved with the fun by downloading the free materials available from the NEA. Or, you can simply celebrate reading by choosing a book with your gifted students/children to read aloud together. Some great ideas for selecting books for gifted kids include:

Whether it’s a full classroom event, a little bit of extra silent reading time, or settling in with a good book about gifted kids, we hope you celebrate Read Across America Day too! (For those curious about what I will read tomorrow, it’s Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich’s 8th Grade SuperZero.)
