Hey Tweens -
Have You DEAR'ed Lately?
D.E.A.R. is an educational acronym that stands for Drop Everything and Read. Only the most cool English teachers will let you D.E.A.R. in class. If yours doesn't, ask them about it - or bring in this blog post.
This week we'll be celebrating Nashville D.E.A.R. Day at Rose Park Magnet School where we will honor books, authors, and reading in general. April 12th is the official National D.E.A.R Day. It is the birthday of the beloved author Beverly Cleary who created one of our all-time favorite childhood characters – Ramona Quimby. On National D.E.A.R. Day, families are encouraged to read together while promoting books as an integral part of daily life.
So how will you be celebrating D.E.A.R. Day? Fun activities to do with family, friends, or an impassioned book club include making bookmarks, reading favorite passages, and acting out scenes. Character charades, anyone? While April 12th is official D.E.A.R. day, every day is a great day to Drop Everything and Read! So, turn off that reality show and get your read on!
