VPS Library Summer Ideas

Mrs. Linse, Primary Library, Summer 21

Summer Reading is Essential

The activity with the most impact on your child's academics is encouraging reading. Whether it's

  • bedtime read alouds,
  • pass-the-book shared reading,
  • a family book club,
  • storytime for pets,
  • a mini research project,
  • or independent reading,

your child's time with "eyes on text" is so important to maintaining the growth they made this school year. Please, expect reading this summer!

Barnes and Noble Free Book Challenge

Enjoy these multi-day ideas for summer project.

Build a Fort!

The engineering tricks of 5 different fort designs are shared in this lesson! Make sure your children are challenged by redefining which building materials and sites they can build on. Then make it miniature by building little "chipmunk" structures with natural materials they find on a hike!

Mousetrap Machines

I know that Mr. Schmidt has encouraged kids to explore the instructables.com website. Maybe some of the things there, like the marshmallow launcher in my link, can be of use in your Rube Goldberg Machine!

Rube Goldberg was a cartoonist who made cause and effect inventions that were WAY too complicated to do the simple task they ended with. Just as satisfying as a House of Cards or domino line, these wacky "mousetrap" machines are a fantastic rainy day activity.
