Welcome to a summer filled with great reading and good times! To get you ready to read, check out these two YouTube videos on reading. The first one, “Reading in the USA,” was actually directed and filmed by a graduate of the masters program that Miss Shammas and I are in…we know him, so I guess we are almost famous! The “Gotta Keep Reading” is another favorite one of mine. I hope they get you in the mood for some excellent summer reading!
I am super excited to welcome all of the Shark summer readers and parents to my, or should I say our blog! This is going to be the place where we will share our great reads, make book recommendations, talk about some good reading websites to visit, and generally celebrate all of the great reading we are doing! I have included the Summer Reading Packet and the bookmark in case you need them.
Do you have a library card??? If you don’t, be sure to stop in to the Oswego Public Library and get one…they’re free, you know! While you’re there, you can sign up for their awesome summer reading program! That’s free, too!
How great is it to be surrounded by books all summer long? I can’t wait to dive into my Someday List! Here are some of the titles on my list: Bigger Than a Breadbox by Laurel Snyder, Ghost of Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen (the sequel to one of my very favorites, Touching Spirit Bear), and I can’t wait to continue reading the Gregor the Overlander series by Suzanne Collins! There are so many great books to read…summer can’t get here fast enough! Happy reading, Sharks!
