Summer Reading Challenge

Summer Reading Challenge 2018
June 11 – September 3

129446-425x282-ponybead

A strong body of research shows that children’s reading skills slide during the summer months without practice. The Huntington Woods Library Summer Reading Challenge provides the opportunity and incentive for your child to maintain (or even improve!) their reading skills during the summer months. Consistency is the key! Build a library visit (or two!) into your weekly schedule. Stop by the library on the way to the pool or after camp.

BABIES, TODDLERS & PRESCHOOLERS

Pick up a game board at the Youth Services desk then collect a stamp each time you
visit the library this summer. Collect 10 stamps to earn a free book to keep; collect
10 more (20 total) and earn a Huntington Woods Library tote bag!

THE BEAD CHALLENGE

Pick up a reading log at the Youth Services desk and start reading! Every time you
read, keep track of how long you read and record it on your log. As soon as you’ve
got minutes to redeem, stop by the library with your log to get your necklace and
beads. Collecting and trading CAN be done during Fruit Camp visits to the library.

 

Reading levels:

• 15 minutes = solid color bead
• 30 minutes = sparkly bead
• 1 hour = shiny bead
• 2 hours = glow-in-the-dark bead
• 4 hours = charm

“Level Up” As You Read!

Example: If you read for 30 minutes on
Monday and earn a sparkly bead, then
read for 30 minutes on Tuesday and earn
another sparkly bead, you can exchange
your two sparkly beads for one shiny bead,
if you wish.

Plan a Design

Here are some examples:
• A pattern of sparkly and solid
• Five green beads of each type (solid,
sparkly, shiny, g-i-t-d)
• All glow-in-the-dark
• Bead, charm, bead, charm

TAKE NOTE

• You must bring your log with you to
collect beads.
• If you are exchanging beads to “level
up” you must have the beads you wish
to trade with you.
Registration, collecting and trading
can only be done with youth services staff .
