Third graders in Caitlin McHugh’s class at Valley Road School, got a special digital treat on Friday, March 3, from Arthur L. Johnson seniors Alison Bretz and Julia Sapia to celebrate Read Across America Day. The seniors chose stories from the famous Dr. Seuss collection to celebrate reading and show how important it is to them.

Arthur L. Johnson library media specialist Carla Celso and Valley Road School third grade teacher Caitlin McHugh brought students face to face using Google Hangouts. Bretz and Sapia, aspiring teachers of the Tomorrow’s Teachers program at ALJ were able to read two stories to the students of the third grade class in real time.

“It was awesome seeing the kid’s reactions to the books,” Alison Bretz said, “they were so excited!”

Read Across America is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place on Dr. Seuss’s birthday that brings together kids, teens and, books.

“It was amazing to see technology bring together the high school and elementary students,” Carla Celso said, “especially to celebrate reading, something so important, no matter what your age.”

“My students immediately asked when we could do it again in the future! They loved listening to the books especially the one that got them to participate with fun motions,” Miss McHugh added.
