BPY Celebrates ‘Read Across America Day’ and Dr. Seuss’ Birthday

BPY students celebrated reading on Wednesday, March 2, by hosting special guest readers and inviting students from other grades to read with them. Eighth graders and kindergartners were excited to discover that they use many of the same techniques and strategies when encountering new texts. One wise kindergartner proudly exclaimed that before he starts reading, he looks at the books and the pictures and tries to see what he “already knows” by picking out familiar words and patterns. An older student quickly responded that in eighth grade they call it “activating prior knowledge” before they read a new text. In addition, special guest readers visited our second graders today to read to them in Hebrew and English in honor of Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’ birthday.
