Summer Reading Bingo Challenge
Edmond Public Schools 2020
Many students and families regard summer break as just that—a break from school and classroom studies. Unfortunately, it often means a break from reading, which can seriously hamper achievement in the classroom. There’s a solid link between the amount of independent reading children do and their success in school. Research shows that kids who never crack open a book during the summer often fall behind in reading—the notorious “summer slide”—while kids who read, maintain or improve their reading and learning skills.
I invite you to support your child in the Edmond Summer Reading Challenge. There are two levels of participation: 1)— Illustrator completes a Public Library Reading program OR complete at least 20 activities on the Bingo sheet. 2) Author participates in a Public Library Reading program AND at least 20 activities on the Bingo sheet.
Illustrator: A special “Imagine Your Story” prize, and Papa Murphy’s gift certificate.
Author: Invitation to Summer Reading Celebration, Papa Murphy’s gift certificate and a special “Imagine Your Story” prize.
Parents must initial and date all completed activities (write over print in box). Bingo sheets and verification in the Public Library Reading Program (i.e. reading log with titles, or goal two certificates) are due to your media specialist by August 23.
