When kids read over the summer, they are less likely to fall behind when they head back to school.  These learning losses are often called the “Summer Slide.”  Gunning Bedford has made it a priority to keep our students’ skill sharp this summer by encouraging them to read.

We have joined the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, a free online reading program.  Our goal is for the students in our school to read the most minutes possible in an effort to receive recognition and a mention in the 2018 Scholastic Book of World Records.  Let’s do it GB!

If you child would like to participate, s/he should see Ms. Citino in Room 100 during homeroom and sign up to receive an individual username and password. Final Activity Grid Paragraph Rubric Summer Reading Information 2017
