This summer I want to mix it up. For the past few years we have run our own Summer Reading Challenge but this year instead of just asking readers to read read read I want to support them as they do. To keep summer reading fresh I have created summer reading calendars packed with reading prompts and simple literacy ideas to keep reading all summer long. That’s not the best part though. The calendars are only half of the fun, every day on our Facebook Page you can dive deeper checking out resources and book recommendations for whatever is on the calendar for the NEXT DAY starting May 31st.
Every day on Facebook I will post the next day’s mission with links to book titles, activity ideas, and more. Here is an example:
I wanted to start promoting this now even though it’s 2 weeks before the program starts because I want you to have time to reserve books that your local library, pick up a few that might work for your kids and get ready to read until the very end of summer.
You can print out the calendars below and pick and choose which activities work for your family or faithfully follow along every day. Do what works for you and your family. I just want to offer up a huge buffet of ideas to keep kids reading this summer.
Are you in? Join in the fun and keep the reading fun all summer long.
