Celebrating reading and all things Seuss

You're never too old, too wacky, too wild,

to pick up a book and read to a child.

– Dr. Seuss 

The magic of reading recently swept through Sandshore as the school celebrated Read Across America. Held on the birthday of Theodor Geisel, known to the world and children of all ages as Dr. Seuss, the day featured reading activities and guests who read to classes.

Group activities held in the library throughout the day highlighted the school’s celebration. The activities for students in grades 2-4 were Seuss-themed projects that incorporated science, technology, engineering, and math in some way. Students worked cooperatively on the various creative tasks. For example, fourth-graders were challenged to work in groups of eight to build the tallest “Cat in the Hat” tower. Each group had 24 large cups, 24 small cups, and six index cards to work with. 

Some activities continued throughout the week. A favorite of many students connected the home and school using social media. A different bedtime story was recorded and posted to the school’s Twitter feed each day by a Sandshore staff member. Interim principal Jennifer Curry, reading specialist Anemarie Hall, instructional supervisor Kristy McFarlane, and school counselor Elena Melekos read the storybooks.

Guest readers included Sgt. Jay Kazan from the New Jersey State Police and Dr. Robert Zywicki, superintendent of schools, in addition to parents and grandparents.

Mrs. Hall coordinated all the RAA activities.
