What is Read Across America Week

March 2 is National Read Across America Day, a day to celebrate our favorite activity. The day was established by the National Education Association (NEA) in 1998 to help get kids excited about reading. The day occurs each year on the birthday of beloved children’s book author Dr. Seuss.  While some of Dr. Seuss’ works have not aged well; Read Across America day is still a great way to celebrate a love for reading with kids and adults of all ages.

Below is a growing list of free instant download coloring pages and activity sheets.  These are perfect for teachers teaching about Read Across America Day to their elementary aged students.  These printables are very inexpensive and sometimes FREE to support teachers and those who homeschool.  Printables can be used year after year.

Why is Read Across America Week important?

Reading is important because fascists are against it. If anything, that is it. Read to fight fascism. Fascists love the poorly educated. Read the books they ban.

I ask you to kindly share the link of this post with other teachers but please do not simply share the download.  This is a small but important revenue stream for our family. As a former homeschooling parent who is trying to re-enter the workforce after more than ten years of homeschooling; blogging and printables are my main source of income and my family does depend on those clicks and 99 cent purchases.  I appreciate you supporting us by visiting today and considering a purchase!

Now, more than ever, it is important to encourage our kids to read everything they can get their hands on. As education is being challenged all over the country, it shows certain lawmakers are scared of the future generations being inclusive and educated. History has shown us that the people who ban the books are the bad guys. We stand with the brave teachers and parents who let kids read. We will be teaching our kids to vote out fascism. Be Brave – Read Banned Books.
