Students, Staff Celebrate Read Across America Day

Students and staff dressed like their favorite literary characters during the National Education Association’s Read Across America Day March 2 at Falcon Elementary School of Technology.  The FESoT reading committee developed the idea as a way to excite students about reading, and also to honor Dr. Suess’ birthday. “We just thought it would be a fun way to celebrate the day,” said Robyn Johnson, fifth grade teacher and instructional coach. The committee’s goal is to increase primary literacy. Students also participated in a “read and feed” classroom activity, enjoying a snack while sitting with a pillow or blanket to read a book.
