Read Across America Day

2nd_Skype_Crowded_at_Computer

Two classes from Blue Ridge Elementary celebrated Read Across America Day in a literal way- they read with other students via Skype! 

Second graders in Ms. McIntyre’s class listened to a Dr. Seuss book read by second grades in Maine.  They returned the favor by reading two fun poems to them.  Ms. Bouska’s fourth graders had a similar experience reading with another class from Iowa.

“What made this experience truly great was the fact that both classes had opportunity to ask questions about the school life of their Skyping partners,” Blue Ridge Elementary Teaching and Learning Coach Christy Lamb said.

Also in honor of Ready Across American Day, students at Little Blue Elementary joined in celebrating in an assembly that featured a special recording of Dr. Seuss’s “The Cat in the Hat” read by pop-icon Justin Bieber.
