One School, One Book
We are so excited about starting our book Stranded! We started our book with a fun filled pep assembly and then passed out books to every family in our school. We had some very happy kiddos.
We want to encourage you to take time to read this book to or with your child. The book was selected because it can be easily enjoyed and followed by younger students, but will still captivate and stimulate older readers. This is a family project-read together!
Follow your chapter outline on your flyer or bookmark so that you can stay up to date with our reading. We will have daily trivia for prizes following each chapter and teachers will facilitate discussions and activities to enhance the at-home reading experience. We also have the map that parents can initial after you or your child reads each chapter. This will help them find their way to our very own treasure chest at the end of our book!!
I hope you love the book as much as I do-I think you will!
