Welcome to Bonny Slope’s summer reading passport challenge! Let books give you the trip of a lifetime and take you to far off places to meet new and interesting people!
Last week, summer reading passports were sent home in Friday Folders. This new and exciting program will encourage students to take a chance on a new genre and experience the joy of reading wherever their summer adventures take them.
The student reading passport is a place to record the books your child read and log the completed challenges on the Reading Visa pages. For each challenge met, your child will receive a stamp in their passport. Stamps will be available at Meet the Teacher Night and in the library after school starts.
Here’s a listing of the eight types of reading challenges:
Read about a character who does not look like you or live like you.
Read about a country new to you.
Read on a trip.
Read in nature.
Read in a homemade fort.
Visit a local library
Ask a librarian a question.
Participate in another summer reading incentive (Ex: Scholastic, local bookstore, public library)
Parents can post a pic of their child meeting your visa challenge on Instagram @BSEPYP #bobcatsummerread.
Students turn their passport into their new teacher on the first day of school, September 6, 2017.
It will be added to a grade level participation graph displayed in the library. The grade level with the most participants will get a Summer Reading Passport PRIZE!
Eight visa stamps means your passport is counted TWICE on the grade level participation graph (each grade level has a different color passport).
All participants will be recognized at the first assembly AND get to go to Summer Reading Passport Party held at Bonny Slope!
The best reward of all is the adventures you’ll have getting into the incredible stories!
Questions can be directed to Jennifer Oordt (firstname.lastname@example.org).
