“March is Reading Month” Fun!


I have such fond memories of my elementary school career – especially March. My teachers always had such creative ideas and activities planned for us during reading month (pre-Pinterest, even!), and I’m fortunate to get to re-live that excitement with my kids. My son’s 4th grade class has activities planned for the entire month, including bring a stuffed animal for Friday D.E.A.R. time and writing his very first book report!

To celebrate reading month, one of our awesome graphic designers whipped up a couple goodies for use in your classroom this March. But who says you have to stop there? We think reading activities are great all year long!

Visit our Pinterest Reading Ideas board to Snag, print, and pin the print-friendly bookmarks and posters – and even add your own ideas! You can also download them at the links below.
