by Alexie Basil
Did you know Beverly Cleary created Drop Everything and Read Day in Ramona Quimby, Age 8? Celebrate National DEAR Day 2019 on April 12 by submitting a photo of your students reading for a chance to win a FREE Book Box for your class!
Ramona Quimby’s teacher Mrs. Whaley will forever be remembered as the teacher who gave us DEAR—Drop Everything and Read! And now, DEAR has taken on a life of its own with teachers all over the country and has even received its own official day.
This National Drop Everything and Read Day, celebrate setting aside time to read for pleasure (and the incredible stories of Beverly Cleary) by entering the Scholastic Book Clubs–exclusive DEAR Instagram Sweepstakes!
The challenge? Share a photo of your students dropping everything to read.
One Grand Prize–winning class will receive a FREE Book Box. We’ll send you a flyer, each student can pick one item—and we will foot the bill!
To enter, all you need to do is post your photos on Instagram tagging @ScholasticBookClubs and using the hashtag #DEARClassroom in your description. You must teach in grades PreK through six to be eligible for entry.
Be sure to post your photos by April 19, 2019, for a chance to win. Good luck!
