Summer Reading and Writing 2015!

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss

Below are summer reading and writing projects that students are encouraged, but not required, to do. Students are welcome to complete the Bingo cards by reading and writing in both English and Spanish! Bring the completed cards to school by Friday, September 11th for a small prize. Bingo Cards can be found on our Summer Reading Page.

  • Students entering 1st grade can complete the reading and writing Bingo cards to the best of their ability. The writing Bingo calls for a paragraph per prompt, but students are welcome to write just a sentence or two.
  • Students entering grades 2 – 5 can complete the reading and writing Bingo cards. They can do a simple Bingo, or try for a black out!
  • Students entering middle school can choose to do the general reading Bingo, or try the Young Adult one. They can also choose to do the writing or journal Bingo.

Don’t forget to sign up with your local public library summer reading program too. Bookstores like Barnes and Noble also have summer reading programs that include a free book as a prize. Below are two websites/reading list that you might want to check out as well:

See our Summer Reading Page for other reading ideas, OBOB lists, bingo cards, and copies of the Jaguar’s Read Summer Reading Log!
