One item to keep in mind is The Governor's Summer Reading Challenge
2008, which is part of the "Read with a child - 20 minutes a day"
program. The calendar is illustrated in color, covers June, July and
August, and it has tracking bookmarks. At the end of the Summer, the
child can mail a postage-paid card to the Governor and receive a
participation certificate. This year's theme is "Catch the reading Bug
this Summer." This calendar should be available from the State Office
of Education soon.
Also, look for the Spanish version for your ELL families!

I'm trying to put together some type of summer reading program for our
students here at Wahlquist Junior High. I know that there are some of
you out there that have good programs going. And some of you have tried
things that didn't work so well. I hope not to reinvent the wheel, round
or square, so I'm asking for some help.
My idea is to have a tracking chart where the students can track their
reading and their parents can sign off on it. Then at the end of the
summer they can get some incentive prizes for the reading they have
Those who have working programs, do you reward based on books read?
hours read? pages read? What kind of incentives do you offer? What are
the thresholds the students need to reach to qualify for the incentives.
Any forms, flyers, ideas, successes or failures that you would be
willing to share would be greatly appreciated.
