In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday (3/2) and Read Across America going on this week, I am hosting a read-a-thon fundraiser at several schools and kicking them all off this week! Today was my first kick-off event. I did a brief read-aloud session with a large group of preschoolers and explained to them how the read-a-thon works (I'm hoping their parents will take the time to read the letter I sent home explaining it as well).
- It encourages reading
- The participating children are rewarded for their reading with new books of their choosing
- The schools all get new books for their classrooms (also of their choosing)
- We get money to put into our adoption fund!
