Read Across America Day: Gotta Keep Reading
Posted by: Cindy Dobrez and Lynn Rutan

Cindy and Lynn: You may have already seen this fun, inspiring middle school reading video, but if not, check out what Ocoee Middle School in Orange County Florida did to celebrate reading. 1600 students and staff, holding books, dancing and singing to a remake of the Black Eyed Peas song, “I Gotta Feeling.” Using the song with permission, they changed the title to “Gotta Keep Reading” and wrote new lyrics. Take a look! And how are YOU celebrating Read Across America Day?

We noticed that they filmed this in December.
Outside.
In t-shirts.
No coats.
We’d be dancing too!

(Shout out to our colleague, West Ottawa Public Schools elementary school librarian Debbie Whitbeck for sharing this awesome video!)
