Read Across America Week - 5 Days of Books and Activities for elementary aged children.

When I was teaching, Dr. Seuss week was one of my favorite times of the year. We’d take a break for our everyday routine to read, read, read. Guest speakers were invited, doors were decorated and everyone had silly socks.

But sometimes it seemed like a task to overcome! Even at home – we are already busy. Adding another project for Read Across America seems like a lot.

>>>Easy<<< Dr. Seuss Projects

That’s why I’ve gathered some simple projects that you can use in your home or classroom to celebrate Read Across America week. The planning is done for you. 

These projects are an easy and fun addition to your day – NOT a task that you will have to overcome!

Each day you’ll

  • Read a different Dr. Seuss Book
