To celebrate National Read Across America Day, Grade 1 and 2 students at Randallstown Elementary wore red and white, or Dr. Seuss inspired outfits. Throughout the day, these students traveled to different classrooms where they read Dr. Seuss books and participated in fun, engaging activities.

Many classrooms even incorporated a STEM activity into their Seuss-inspired lessons. In one classroom, students read the "Foot Book" and then traced one of their feet. They then had to measure how long their feet were using various types of measurement (cubes, paper clips & inches). In another classroom, students listened to "Horton Hatches An Egg." Afterward, students were able to dye and decorate their own eggs. As they traveled to second grade, students listened to "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" and then graphed multi colored goldfish. Additionally, students listened to "The Lorax" and then had to explain how they would protect the environment.

This was an exciting Read Across America Day at Randallstown, one that no weather could dampen.
