Read Across America Hits Shiloh!
Students and staff at Shiloh enjoyed celebrating the kick-off of March’s Read Across America with a week-long celebration of Dr. Seuss. A variety of activities throughout the school helped spark excitement for Dr. Seuss and reading across our school.
On Monday, students throughout the school wore silly, mismatched socks for Fox in Socks day. Tuesday we read The Cat in the Hat and made red and white striped hats. Many wacky things were spotted Wednesday as students and staff dressed wacky for Wacky Wednesday. Some students even spotted and enjoyed the green eggs and ham served in the cafeteria for breakfast! Shiloh was filled with Dr. Seuss characters Thursday for Favorite Character Day. On Friday students wore t-shirts from their favorite vacation destination for Oh, the Places You’ll Go Day. Throughout the week, Kindergarteners enjoyed guest readers sharing their favorite Dr. Seuss books, including: Mr. Spencer, Mrs. Aldredge, Mrs. McGinniss, Mrs. Fowler, and Mrs. Jameyson.
For the second year in a row, Mr. Spencer has challenged our student body with a reading challenge. This year the challenge is to read 20 minutes a day for 20 days, starting March 1st. As we work to increase student’s reading stamina, we want to instill a lifelong love of reading. Students participating in the challenge will be able to celebrate their participation with an ice cream party March 26th.
Don’t miss out on Shiloh’s book fair, running Tuesday, March 17th through Thursday, March 26th. Come to our media center with your family and pick out some great books to read together. In the words of Dr. Seuss, “You’re never too old, too wacky or wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.”
