#bookaday Summer Reading Challenge
Want to avoid the "summer slide"?
Join Mrs. Liptak in the #bookaday Reading Challenge!
Here's what you do:
- You set your own start date and end date.
- Read one book per day for each day of summer vacation. This is an average, so if you read three books in one day and none the next two, it still counts.
- Any book qualifies including picture books, chapter books, nonfiction, biographies, graphic novels, poetry, or even audio books.
- Keep a list of the books you read and share them with others. Better yet, keep the list and show it to Mrs. Liptak at the start of next year!
- If you need another Kinder-2nd grade brochure, click here for English or for Spanish.
- If you need another 3rd-5th grade brochure, click here for English or for Spanish.
