80 Days of Reading
- Encourage your child to read each day.
- Have your child create a description of their summer reading. (Parents may certainly help younger students.) The text for twitter should be limited to 120 characters. Feel free to send a longer text for the website. Your child can describe what they are reading, where they are reading or whom they are reading with.
- Please include a photo of your child reading. I encourage you to get creative. Here are a few ideas; at the pool, at the beach, on a plane, in a boat, in a tree house, etc.
4.Be sure to include your child's first and last name. Don't forget the grade that they are entering in August.
5.Add the text "80 Days" to your email subject line.
All students who participate will receive a free book from the fall book fair.
