On March 2, Richardson ISD students will join millions of their peers across the country to celebrate the twentieth annual National Education Association Read Across America Day.

The day is designed to get students excited about reading and honor Dr. Seuss's birthday. To pay tribute to the good doctor and commend the fun and value of reading, schools around the district are holding various Dr. Seuss events.

Forest Lane Academy and RISD Academy are each celebrating Dr. Seuss all week long, with different daily Dr. Seuss related themes.

Prairie Creek ES will present Seussical Jr. the Musical, presented by 5th and 6th graders.

Mark Twain ES 2nd grade students are spending time with their 6th grade reading buddies, exploring Dr. Seuss books together. "Reading buddies are beneficial for both the older child and the younger reader," says 2nd grade teacher Katy Johnstone. "Reading with a younger student fosters leadership and responsibility for the older students, while the younger student benefits from hearing stories aloud. This models fluency, phrasing, and reading with expression. Everyone benefits from building our community by engaging students in different grade levels!"

Kids who read, and who are read to, do better in school and help build great schools. Read Across America also reminds parents of the crucial role they play in their children's education. Taking time to read with a child is one of the most important lessons that parents can share with their children.
