Drop Everything And Read!

April 12 is a very special holiday in first grade! It’s DEAR Day, also known as Drop Everything And Read Day! DEAR Day is a celebration that helps remind us of the fun and importance of reading of reading every single day. It is hosted on April 12th each year to celebrate the birthday of beloved author Beverly Cleary.

We celebrated in first grade by choosing some fun books and comfy spots to enjoy 20 minutes of reading to wrap up our morning. You can celebrate at home by taking some time to  read as a family this evening. Click here to learn more about DEAR Day.
