February 2012Discovering Literacy on the Western Edge North Dakota Reading Month – Dickinson

Dear Teachers,

North Dakota has designated February as North Dakota Reading Month. The theme for 2012 is Discovering Literacy on the Western Edge. We have compiled a few ideas to get students excited about reading for the month of February.

We ask that classrooms decorate according to the theme, which is the theme of the North Dakota Reading Conference to be held in Dickinson during the month of April.

Attached is a calendar of activities that are centered around our theme. These activities include books about oil, the people who work in the oil industry, and the conservation of our natural resources. We are excited to share these activities with you! Happy reading!
