read a palooza

During the summer months, it is important for students to continue reading.  Research shows that abundant reading increases vocabulary as well as background knowledge, which is necessary for proficient comprehension.

This summer, Crosswell Elementary is participating in Scholastic’s READ-A-PALOOZA!  Each student has a log in ticket that will be sent home.  They will use the log in to go to the READ-A-PALOOZA site to track the number of minutes they read each day over the summer.  When we return to school in the fall, students who have tracked at least 400 minutes will get extra recess and popsicles.  Students who read at least 700 minutes will get to choose two books to keep, in addition to the extra recess and popsicles.  The student whoreads the most minutes over the summer will receive the grand prize…a Kindle Fire 7 tablet!  (You must read more than 700 minutes minimum for this prize.)

See the attachments for other resources and opportunities for the summer.  Don’t forget, the Pickens County Library has many opportunities and resources as well.
