My daughter brought home a small green pamphlet from her school for the Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Triathlon. This is a summer reading program for elementary students in grades 1-5. Forms can be found at your local Barnes and Noble store, in the kids section. The only requirement is that the student fill out the answers to three out of four reading-related questions. Then they get to select a FREE new book from a list of titles arranged by grade level.
I sat with my daughter for about fifteen minutes before we headed out to Barnes and Noble. She read the questions aloud, filling in her own answers. Then we went to Barnes and Noble to pick out her brand new book. She chose a chapter book about dogs. Beaming with excitement, she brought it to the register and “paid” with her log full of answered questions, excited to go home and start reading!
