Read Across America Day 2010

We had a blast today with guest readers, door decorating, and best of all - dressing as your favorite book characters! Many classes were very creative with their door decorations and were sure to get permission from authors if they used the specific characters. For example, one of our Kindergarten classes had a Skype session with Mike Artell and asked for permission to use his Petite Rouge cover for their door. A fourth grade class created a Blackbeard door and emailed the author for permission to print and use the book covers. Great job guys!

If you look closely you can see the chat where Mike Artell granted Mrs. Kidd's class permission to use his cover art.

The author granted the use of her book cover through an email request from Mrs. Smith.

Several staff members and students also dressed up as favorite book characters. Due to protecting students, I am not posting student pics, just staff, but they are playing on the TV kiosks in the school this week.
