During the week of February 27, McKinley Elementary School in Elkins Park transformed into Seussville to Celebrate Read Across America.
The school engaged in a wide array of fun-filled reading-themed activities in celebration of reading. The school celebrated with dress up days, guest readers shared books written by Dr. Seuss, students created artistic renderings of characters from Dr. Seuss’s texts, the Cat in the Hat made a surprise visit, and students at the school voted on their favorite Dr. Seuss book. In addition, the school lobby was decorated to look like one of the storybook settings from Dr. Seuss’s books and the students collected many books to be donated to the Breathing Room.
It was a very fun week at McKinley … celebrating reading!
