2X2 Reading Program
Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Grade
The 2x2 Reading Program is an optional program for all K, 1st and 2nd grade students. The 2x2 reading list is chosen each year by the Texas Library Association Committee, and it consists of 20 recommended picture books for young readers. Students may participate in the program by reading the books and filling out a 2x2 Texas Color Sheet going home this week in binders/folders. When students complete their information sheets, they may turn it in to the library for a prize and recognition on the library bulletin board. Students must read all 20 books to receive credit. Your child can find the books in the Nichols Library as well as the Frisco Public Library. The deadline is May 2016. Happy Reading!
