Get your students excited about being BUSY AS A BEE with SUMMER READING.
Download our DON’T BUG ME, I’M READING! calendar PDF. Students will find it easy “not to be a slug” about recording their summer reading! Share with your classroom these fun ideas for dusting the spider webs out of their little brains over the summer.
A Summer Reading Challenge: Give each student a BUG-TASTIC Summer Reader BragTag®. Your classroom is a summer reading team! Have students brainstorm titles of books and authors they like, and make a “summer reading list” from the brainstorming session. Students will see this as a fun opportunity to read books their classmates like, rather than the usual summer reading “assignment list”. Make sure your students know it’s a team effort! The team brainstormed together to come up with the list, now they can read together to meet their summer reading goals! If they read from the team’s summer reading list, the ENTIRE TEAM should wear their BUG-TASTIC BragTag the first week of school, after summer break. Even if the student isn’t returning to your classroom, see how many students can proudly come back to school as a BUG-TASTIC reader!
