Preparing Students for The BIG Summer Read @ Pike!
Our awesome summer reading committee has creatively organized a virtual summer reading program. At this point we have no idea if our students will eagerly participate.
The latest plans to help launch reading throughout the summer will include a Skype and Twitter chat with rising 5th graders. I have invited a group of 6th graders to Skype with incoming 5th grade students to help answer questions on the transition from elementary to middle school. Both schools will be tweeting and using the same hash tag during the Skype session so everyone may see comments or possibly answer questions. We also plan on introducing our summer reading program to the rising 5th graders. 6th graders will also demonstrate the use of our audio eBooks.
Time will tell through the online form and circulation statistics if our students will use the school library eBook resources during the summer. Stay tuned for more updates on our progress.
