We’re at the half way mark . . . are your kids still reading? It’s tough to stay focused so maybe a challenge is needed?! Summer Reading for Kids Libraries Rock! – there are a lot of fun programs and activities to enjoy – we’ll share a few we found and you tell us what you are reading this summer! Public reading programs are fun to connect with others and listen to stories.
The annual Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge stressed the importance of reading during the summer and to recognize the top-performing schools from the previous year’s Summer Reading Challenge. Schools compete based on student population and grade level. The program identifies the schools with the highest participation and the highest books-per-student. Student journals, district reporting forms and all other materials are available online. The Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge supports community programs run by local public libraries so this year’s theme is “Libraries Rock!”
