Avoid that Summer Slide: read at least four books this summer to keep up your reading skills. Make it a challenge and fun, too, by participating in a world record event.
VPAA is participating in the Scholastic Read for the World Record as our 2010 Summer Reading Challenge. Students are asked to sign up for an account online at http://www.scholastic.com/summerreading/index.htm
and log their reading minutes each week between May 1st and August 31st.
Recommended reading lists are here:
For ages 3- 7, and 8 – 10
For ages 10 – 12
For Young Adult (8th grade and up)
In addition, students in grades 3 – 8 are encouraged to read the 2010 – 2011 Sunshine State Books. Those lists are here:
Don’t forget that your public library is a GREAT place to get books this summer – and they have their own summer reading programs and challenges, complete with prizes and activities, so go visit your public library today!
