The National Head Start Association found a great way to celebrate National Reading Month. This year, the NHSA has partnered with actor and author Taye Diggs to promote cultural understanding and pride while wishing Congress a Happy National Reading Month.
If you want to get in on the fun, they offer some ideas on how to being participating National Reading Month.
- Choose what day or days in March you will do the reading month activity with a child.
- Print out a few sample activity ideas and read Chocolate Me! or Mixed Me! or both during the month of March at your Head Start program. There is even a take home activity to engage your parents with!
- Take pictures and have fun! Post your pictures on social media using the hashtag #ReadWithTaye. When you post your pictures make sure to tag @NatlHeadStart, @Readingby3rd and Head Start's Child Literacy Ambassador @TayeDiggs on Facebook and Twitter.
- And, most importantly, tag your Members of Congress! Share your pictures and with your Senators and Representative a happy National Reading Month! You can find out who your members of Congress are here. To tag them on social media, find Members of Congress handles here.
