Welcome Wildcats to the Summer of 2016!

Elmwood Summer Reading Challenge 2016

Let's Get Started

Elmwood Elementary School has a summer reading challenge for you! Summer vacation is right around the corner.  Before you know it, you'll be enjoying the carefree, sunny days of summer.  Have you thought about your summer reading?  Is there a book you are anxious to start?  Now is the time to start thinking about your "bucket list" of summer reading.

Summer Reading Challenge

1.  Make a list of books you want to read.
2.  Visit the library or book store and select your books.
3.  Set aside time to read a little bit every day this summer. 
4.  Visit Where the Wildcats Read, the blog, once each week and tell us about the book you are reading.
5.  Read the comments your friends post about their books and reply to at least one person each week.

The Reward

Students who respond at least once each week during the summer will be invited to join us for a summer reading celebration when we return to school in the fall.  More importantly, you will get to experience the joy of reading books and sharing them with your friends.

Summer Reading Bucket List

In the comments below, make a list of books you would like to read this summer.  Be sure to include your first name, last initial, and the grade you will be entering in the fall, so you can earn credit for your response.  For example, if your name is Fern Zuckerman and you are going to be in third grade next year you would write Fern Z. Grade 3.

What books are on your summer reading "bucket list"? Answer in the comments below.

Happy Reading!
