Imagine Your Story!
Current restrictions on gatherings has made Summer Reading Program quite a challenge this year as we try to imagine our stories. We cannot enjoy activities together, but we’ll be independently participating in shared activities. As usual, we’ll still be earning rewards by reading minutes.
Activity: Each week participants will receive a selection of challenges, activities and experiences to choose from. After completing their selections, the reader will become writer and turn their “imagine” into book form. All participants will receive a template for a simple 8-page booklet made from one 8 ½ x 11 sheet of paper. Each activity completed will become a book. By the end of the summer reading program, participants will have their own little library that tells their story. Number of books written earn prizes and entries into the grand prize drawing.
Minutes read will earn beads. Each milestone achieved will earn special beads. Beads will be awarded each week for minutes read from the previous week. Readers can make their beads into jewelry during the summer or we can wait until the end of the summer. If restrictions have been lifted on gatherings, we can have our end-of-program party to share our little libraries and assemble our jewelry.
