CSLOT’s Annual Read-A-Thon
The goal of our Read-a-thon is to help children and adults become better readers and better learners by nurturing a joy of reading.
What is it?
CSLOT’s Read-a-thon is a literacy event. The goal of our Read-a-thon is to help children and adults become better readers and better learners by nurturing a joy of reading. This is an annual reading motivation and awareness initiative that calls for all children in our community to celebrate reading through the month of February. The Read-a-thon will end with a celebration of our reading success on March 2, the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss.
When is it?
CSLOT is holding the Read-a-thon from Tuesday, February 6 – Friday, February 23, celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the national celebration of Read Across America the following week, Monday, February 26 – Friday, March 2.
Where is it?
Clients agree to read every day and keep track of what they’ve read and/or minutes read by filling in their individual Reading Logs either at home or in the waiting room. Parents, teachers or caregivers initial the Reading Log to verify what the child has read. Reading takes place at school, home, and our waiting room.
Who does it?
Read-a-thon isn’t just for kids! Parents can participate too, bringing us closer to our overall goal of 150 books read! As they read, readers tally up their individual reading on their Reading Logs and turn in to their therapist the week of February 26th. The totals are brought together to create a grand total based on clinic-wide participation.
How are we going to celebrate?
During the week of February 26th, we will celebrate our clinic-wide grand total of books read by handing out Reading Achievement Certificates, wearing Suess-inspired hats, and sharing birthday cake!
