    I'm looking for dates any and all dates that can be connected to books and reading.
    For example, January is National Soup Month, which can be celebrated with related books and cooking projects. Dr. Seuss' birthday is March 2, and National D.E.A.R. day is April 12.
    What else?

    I don't know what level you are, but hopefully these will help.
    Chinese New Year
    Groundhog Day
    100's Day (varies according to date school started)
    President's Day
    Dental Health Month (Feburary)
    I don't have my plan book with me, so these were just some off the top of my head. I believe Activity Village (click on Holidays) will have several monthly special days listed.

    Sept. 17th is Constitution Day, Johnny Appleseed's birthday is September 23rd
    Both have great books associated with them.

    Many of the dates in February this year will be Palindromes! That will be a fun word to introduce to your students and you can do several activities with words or sentences centered around Palindromes.


    2-1-12, 2-10-12, 2-11-12, 2-12-12, 2-13-12, all the way until 2-19-12

    Google search

    Try a search like what happened on this day in history for kids and you will come up with loads of sites with serious entries and some with a chuckle.

    It will be great if even the kids will have new new outdoor entertainments which stimulate their minds.
