  • Summer Reading Challenge:
    •  What is more important than having your child read this summer?  Almost nothing!  I really like the summer reading lists provided by the American Library Association  because it is quite a manageable list of really terrific books.  An avid summer reader could try to read ALL the books their list.  However, what you read, and how much you read is not as important as simply reading.  To that end, The Birches is going to approach our summer reading challenge a little differently, in Birches fashion.  We are going to ask each child to bring in one 5 x 7 photo (printed on copy paper is fine) of them reading someplace, anyplace; the more unconventional, the better!  Would they be reading in a hammock?  Under a picnic table?  Can an older student take a “selfie” of themselves reading with a best friend?  Write your name, place and title of the book you are reading and bring it in the first day of school.  Of course, you can bring in as many pictures and places and book titles you want.  Who will have the most unconventional place?  Who will have the most books?  The point is, READ.
