National Read Across America Day is celebrated every year on March 2nd. This day is also known as Dr. Seuss Day.
Spanish teachers can always use these celebrations as opportunities to bring excitement to their class. If you need some activity ideas, check out the article 4 Read Across America Day Spanish Class Activities.
To help Spanish teachers share the joy of reading (in the target language), we have unlocked two training videos about Free Voluntary Reading (FVL) and Sustained Silent Reading (SSR) that were part of the last online conferences we hosted.
⚠️ These two extraordinary video sessions are unlocked especially for you until Saturday, March 7th, 2020.
