  • Complete an activity for each book that you have read. This will act as your proof that you have in fact read the book.
  • All responses (paper and electronic) are due by Friday, August 31, 2018. Students who complete their responses on paper must turn in their 3 response sheets (or bookmark for grade 2 students) to their classroom teacher by August 31st.
