The summer reading program is completely voluntary. It is a way to keep your child reading over the summer and connected with me at the same time. If you choose to sign up, I will provide you with 6 different short books at your child’s specific reading level. As your child reads each book, s/he writes me a postcard about the book and draws a picture of the setting. Your child mails the postcards to my home throughout the summer. At the beginning of the school year, I will bring each of the students back to Room 10 for them to select prizes based on the number of postcards I receive. The books and pre-addressed postcards are provided by me. The only cost involved are the stamps. Please be on the look-out for the sign-ups. The kids love to read and send me the postcards and it’s a great way to reconnect at the beginning of next school year. Over the past 2 years I have had 80% participation. Let’s see if we can beat that this year!
