WATE reads to local students for Read Across America

As Seen On WATE

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Several elementary schools in the area invited our WATE 6 On Your Side anchors and reporters and 6 Storm Team meteorologists to read to students on Friday ahead of Monday’s Read Across America Day.

Studies show reading to young children promotes language development, reading comprehension and overall success in school. The National Education Association’s Read Across America Day, also known as Dr. Seuss Day, is March 2.

Thanks to our local students and schools for having us!
