We are using a fabulous idea by Amy, from Teach Mama to make sure we keep reading tons through the beautiful summer months. We are making two paper chains for Ryan's room, a long one, and a short one.
He removes a link from the longer chain every time someone reads him a book. When he finishes his long chain he gets to choose any new book from the book store. He also has a smaller chain that he removes a link from every time he reads us a book. When that chain is gone he gets to choose a new book AND we'll go to frozen yogurt!
We'll be sure to take advantage of these great summer reading programs! Don't forget to check if your local library has a program too!
Barnes and Noble is giving away a free book to reward summer reading for students in grades 1-6:
- Kids read any eight (8) books of their choosing.
- Kids use the Passport to Summer Reading to document the places visited in each book. A parent/guardian signs the Passport when it's complete.
- Kids bring their completed Passport to any B&N store between May 25 and September 7, 2010.
- Kids receive a coupon for a FREE BOOK (to be chosen from a list)
Borders is offering a smaller giveaway list, BUT their summer reading program is open to any child under 12!
For their program you list 10 books you read on their form, and return it to any Borders, Borders Express, or
Waldenbooks store to receive your free book!
