To celebrate Read Across America, Dr. Seuss’s birthday, and to encourage students to read regularly at home, we will have a reading incentive for the month.

Each child is receiving a BINGO board. Their goal is to read 4 books in March and work to get BINGO on their genre board (across, down, or diagonal). Once they read a book, they will complete a reader’s log about their book. Each log requires a parent signature. They can bring these logs in as they complete them and we will mark off that box on their BINGO board in school.

BONUS – If students achieve a BLACKOUT, (ALL boxes done and 16 submitted logs) they can have a special lunch with the 4th grade teachers!

Students have received all their logs and should keep them in a safe place at home. Each Friday we will celebrate their reading and continue to encourage them with different “theme” days, following the schedule below.

Weekly Activities:

Friday, March 2nd: Drop Everything and Read!

Friday, March 9th: Hats Off to Great Books-Students can wear a hat

Friday, March 16th: Bookmarks for the Floating Hospital for Children at

Tufts Medical Center

Friday, March 23rd: Cozy Up With a Book- Students wear comfy clothing

Thursday, March 29th: Dress Up Like Your Favorite Storybook Character

Please encourage your child to read at home. We are very excited to do this fun activity with the students this month!

As part of our March Reading Bingo this year we will be making bookmarks to send to children at Tufts Medical Center Floating Hospital for Children. We would like to send a book with each bookmark created. If you would be interested in donating $1.00 towards a book please send it in by Friday, March 16th.
