2017 Let's Get Ready for Summer Reading

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,

The week of May 8th marks the last week for classes in the media center.  We will cover just one topic: reading over the summer!  Summer reading keeps minds sharp, prevents the "summer slide," and prepares students for the next grade.

In class, students will be introduced to new authors and series as well as reintroduced to old favorites.  We will discuss how to access print books from Richland Library and well as eBooks from our own online digital libraries and interactive databases.

Students will also be encouraged to set reading goals for the summer and keep track of their summer reading in any one of a variety of ways: 1) Reading Bingo (see below), 2) Richland Library's Summer Learning Challenge, 3) create their own reading log, or 4) find a reading challenge online (such as the one from Barnes and Noble).

Summer reading begins when school ends, June 2nd.  Students are to bring in their Bingo sheets, medals from Richland Library, or any reading logs to Ms. King or Ms. George by August 31st.  Then they will be able to participate in our game truck celebration in September.

I have enjoyed working with our Leading Lions this year.  I hope you all have a wonderful and safe summer!  See you in the fall!

Happy Reading!
