BALDWIN — First grade students from Baldwin Elementary are gearing up to celebrate a month-long event. This event engages students in various reading activities. It teaches them the importance of reading as well as the joy of reading. The event is Reading Month which is celebrated nationally.
Armed with a favorite stuffed animal, frazzled hair, and wearing last night’s pajamas, first graders kicked off Reading Month on March 2nd. They started off with a two hour Read-in where the only sounds heard were pages turning. Students spent the day celebrating Dr. Suess’s birthday, complete with his most memorable books and cupcakes to culminate the event. During the day they participated in a Suess themed book walk where every child went home with a book and a special bookmark.
