On Friday, February 24, everyone at MMS participated in a school-wide celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday with the National Education Association’s “Read Across America”. The day included:
Drop Everything and Read (DEAR): For 20 minutes during the school day MMS teachers & students silently read a book of their choice.
Read Aloud: For the first 5-10 minutes of each class, every teacher read aloud to students. Some of the books teachers read include:
- The Story of the Little Mole Who Went in Search of WhoDunit
- Horton Hatches the Egg
- Sir Cumference & the Sword in the Cone
- Sideways Stories from Wayside School
- The Dot and the Line: a romance in lower mathematics
- Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin
- The Giving Tree
- The Day the Crayon Quit
MMS has been hosting this day for 9 years and it was a very fun and special day for students and staff.
