I am a true believer that students should choose what they want to read, they will enjoy reading more. For summer reading students choose a goal of how many books they will read over the summer and then they read books of their choosing. In years past I've provided a list of books at each grade level for students to reference but this year I wanted to do something different.
In the library I'm always encouring students to choose a variety of books. We color code in the library in second grade and at the circulation counter I ask students if they are interested in changing their books to have a variety of a books. So this summer I created "RINGO" or Reading Bingo. This will help students select and read a variety of books. They record the information on the RINGO sheet and also keep track of it on their Reading Log.
