ODE Summer Reading Program
The best way to become a reader is to spend time reading!
We encourage all of our child development through rising 5th grade students to read 20 minutes a day. It doesn't have to be a book! It can be an article, poetry, menus, directions, etc. Whatever your child chooses to read, be sure to complete the Reading Response Log.
Or: our rising 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders can choose to read 3 chapter books and enter them onto their Reading Response Log.
Battle of the Books? Read on!
3rd – 5th grade students have the option of participating in Battle of the Books. Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program. Students read books and come together, usually in groups, to demonstrate their abilities and to test their knowledge of the books they have read by competing in student competitions. We will run our very own Battle of the Books throughout the 2019-2020 school year with a concluding competition at the end of the school year (spring 2020). If you do not want to compete, you can still read the books!
Our summer reading initiative asks students to read 20 minutes a day or read 3 chapter books.
