Summer Reading starts Monday May 9th! Our goal this summer will be to read 300,000 minutes. Studies have shown that students who read 20 minutes per day can avoid the “summer slide” that occurs when school is out. A good goal for students in grades 3 and up is to read 4 chapter books or novels at their reading level.
I will be doing something new this year for students who will be entering grades 5 through 8. Click this flyer for dates that I will be hosting something called “Brownies & Books.” On four different dates of the summer, I will bring brownies to the TPCC coffee shop area to talk with students about what they are reading this summer. Students can buy a drink at the coffee shop and have brownies with me and talk about what they’ve been reading! The flyer contains the books that I will personally be reading in case the students want to read along with me. There is also a suggestion list on the back.
For students entering grades 1-4, I will host a summer party in July. Date TBD.
You can stay connected by following me on social media for book suggestions, updates on our progress in the summer reading challenge, and more!
