March is Reading Month Theme: “Read for the Gold!”

Can also be used for "Read Across America" Month.

IMPORTANT: This is not a “print and use right away” kind of product! You will have to do a little customizing to make these items work for you and your students/school.

I am a K-5 media specialist and it seems like every year I’m scrambling to come up with a school-wide reading theme for our annual “March is Reading Month” or "Read Across America". I hope these ideas save you a little bit of time!

Please download the PREVIEW so you can get an idea of what is included! Please note not every single page is included in this preview.

This download includes:

-Intro letter for Parents. This letter is EDITABLE. You can see what I used for my buildings, but you can customize it to make it work for you. You certainly don’t have to use the letterhead I provided.

-Reading Events for students to complete at home. Again, this file is completely EDITABLE. Change it to meet the needs of your students/school. I’m simply providing ideas.

-Read for the Gold March Calendar. Add your own events for each day during the month of March. I’ve also included a calendar that we used a couple of years ago (it has a different theme) that has some ideas you might want to use if you would like to include a school-wide reading calendar.

-Reading Coupons for the students. My students turned these in throughout the month of March to be included in prize drawings. I’ve included suggestions for prizes in the product download. Also, I include a link to my Pinterest board for some great ideas that go along with this theme.

-Bookmarks that go along with this theme for you to use.

-Lunch table Reservation Signs for those students who earn this privilege. Explanation of this is in the purchased product download.
