Kids ‘R’ Kids East Allen celebrated National Read Across America Day and participated in the Ready to Read Railroad with Dallas Cowboys mascot Rowdy!
We joined in with the students from our sister Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies for our visit to the Frisco Library for story time with Rowdy and the Ready to Read Railroad. Rowdy greeted and high-fived students as they celebrated National Read Across America Day, also known as Dr. Seuss Day. Read Across America Day is an annual celebration inaugurated by the National Education Association created to encourage children to read.
After students yelled and called for Rowdy to come on stage, our APK classes read Clothesline Clues to Sports People Play by Kathryn Helling with Rowdy. We also learned and danced to new, silly songs! We all enjoyed our time at the Frisco Library!
You and your child can visit the Ready to Read Railroad together! The Kids ‘R’ Kids Ready to Read Railroad at the Frisco Library is an educational space designed for children ages 5 and under and their parents to engage in active learning together.
The Ready to Read Railroad offers a wide variety of activities that have been professionally designed to encourage reading, writing, vocabulary, letter and number recognition, and narrative skills, as well as age appropriate hands-on offerings that introduce science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) skills. Ninety percent of a child’s brain develops within the first 5 years of life. Children who engage in purposeful play in their earliest years are proven to display greater comprehension, vocabulary, and cognitive skills by the time they enter kindergarten.
Kids ‘R’ Kids provides a secure, nurturing, and educational environment for your child to bloom into a responsible, considerate, and contributing member of society. Our students experienced our mission hands-on during our field trip to the Frisco Library!
