The K-5 Reading Challenge Continues!

The Kindergarten – 5th Grade Reading Challenge ends this month. It’s not too late to participate, though!

The theme for this year’s K-5 Reading Challenge is “Dive into Diversity: Reading Across Genres and Forms.” The purpose of this year’s challenge is to explore stories in all their glorious forms– poetry, non-fiction, wordless picture books, graphic novels, novels in verse, and more! All of the books on these lists celebrate diversity and inclusivity. As such, some of these books may touch on serious themes that could bring up questions for students and adults, which makes them excellent books to read and discuss as a family and as a community!

For more information on the reading challenge, please check out this letter that is coming home with students this week. Each list can be viewed here:

Students who want to participate must return their signed form and creative response during the week of February 26 – March 2.  Please have your student include their name on their artwork or writing, as well as the title, author, and illustrator that inspired their creative response.  All creative responses will be on display in the library and must be picked up by March 16 if students want to keep them.
