JKC Celebrates Read Across America Day

Jonesboro Kindergarten Center celebrated Read Across America Week March 1st-5th, 2021. Read Across America is a nationwide celebration of reading hosted by the National Education Assiciation.

The program focuses on motivating children to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources that are about everyone and for everyone. Classrooms celebrated by inviting guest readers via zoom, doing special art projects and activities from their favorite books, making various versions of green eggs and ham (inspired by the book Green Eggs and Ham) and dressing wacky each day (inspired by the book Wacky Wednesday).
