Summer Reading Challenge Instructions

Summer reading challenge: Read a book of your choice. (You might take a look at some of the books in the Virtual Library). Then, create a book review with Flipgrid that is 120 seconds or less and upload the review in Flipgrid.


We want you to convince other readers to select your book. So, give the title, author, a brief summary, and your own rating of the book (1-5 stars). The more convincing and creative you are, the more likely your classmates will be to follow your lead and read the book!


**It is expected that students will use appropriate digital citizenship skills when posting their book reviews to Flipgrid. The Flipgrid boards will be monitored by DeISD Flipgrid Administrators.
