Summer Reading Opportunities

Kirsten Edwards, the KCLS Youth Librarian at Duvall and Carnation, gave presentations to all our Language Arts classes about the King County Library System summer reading program. This program is open to readers of all ages and allows parents to participate alongside their children. There are lots of cool activities offered at the Duvall and Carnation libraries for readers of all ages – stop by a branch to sign up for the program and receive a flier telling you all about their offerings.

Current students have received reading journals for the Real Dawgs Read summer reading program offered by the University of Washington. The goal is for students to read at least twenty minutes a day for thirty days over the summer, developing a daily reading habit. When students have completed the reading, parents/guardians sign the journal and send it off in the mail (it is already addressed and stamped) and in a few weeks your student will receive an official UW ballcap in the mail. Thank you to UW for this opportunity!

Incoming 6th graders received their TMS Summer Reading Challenge Bingo cards at Fifth Grade Transition Day. Students can choose whatever books they'd like to read that fit the description in the squares. Students can finish one bingo, multiple bingos, or even go for a black-out! Bring it back in the fall so we can have some wonderful conversations about good books. If you have lost your bingo card, elementary librarians have a copy and a digital copy can be found on webpages for Mrs. Switaj, Mrs. Pellham, and here.
