About this Skype lesson

I teach second grade in Maine and I'm looking for other classes to Skype with on Read Across America Day on Friday March 1, 2013. Last year my class did this and had a blast. We're looking for classes of any age to share in celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday.

Some ideas for our skype call:

-Read the "Reader's Oath" together to kick off our pledge to read everyday. You can find the oath here:
-Read part of your favorite picture book or Dr. Seuss book
-Recite some Dr. Seuss together
-Tell about your favorite place to read
-Tell about your favorite book and why
*If your class has 1-1 devices students can read to each other

We're available to Skype 8:50-2:00 EST. Please send a message/email via Skype if you'd like to set up a time to Skype on Read Across America Day!

I have a first grade class that would love to read a poem to your class. I was hoping you could also read a poem for us.
