Every March we have fun celebrating reading and one of our favorite authors, Dr. Seuss.
Along with lots of fun Dr Seuss Activities, I challenge the kids to read at least 30 minutes every day that month. They enjoy snuggling under blankets, reading quietly, and sometimes not so quietly when they share a graphic novel that makes them break into a fit of giggles.
Some of our favorite activities to celebrate reading are Dr Seuss STEM Activities that go with our favorite books.
