MBP Seahawks' Summer Reading Program

Myrtle Beach Primary’s Summer Reading Program

Dear MBP Seahawk Parents and Students:

Research shows students may experience a “summer slide”, or decline in reading skills, over summer break. The good news is that it’s easy to beat the “summer slide” – just by reading some great books! Rising 1st and 2nd graders have the opportunity to participate in our Summer Reading Program: “Imagine Your Story”.

Here is how you can join in the reading fun

• Read for 300 minutes (10 hours). You may also count the time you spend reading to your child. Record the time you spend reading on the attached Student Reading Log.

• Choose your two favorite books and complete the attached Reading Response organizer for those two books.

• Play Reading Bingo (see attached sheet). Check off each box as you complete the activity. Get four checked boxes in a row and win a prize!


  • Turn in a completed Student Reading Log and two Reading Response sheets and earn an ice cream party when school resumes!
  • Turn in a completed Reading Bingo sheet and you may choose a free Scholastic book to keep!
  • (All Summer Reading Program materials should be returned to Mrs. Campen in the Library Learning Commons by Aug. 21st)

Happy Reading! Mrs. Campen, Library Media Specialist
