Summer Read-O-Rama Part 1 from Mr. Stortz on Vimeo.


During the last week of school, I told all of the students to try their best to keep up with the blogs over the summer. I encouraged everyone to make a few posts during the summer to let us know what was going on in your life. I also hinted at some summer reading activities to help everyone stay motivated to read. I'm calling it Summer Read-O-Rama. Throughout the summer I will be posting updates and new activities for everyone to take part in.


Part 1: Five for 5th


Students- pick out 5 books that you want to read before fifth grade. Get on your blog and post your titles. Check out what others are reading and leave some comments. You can even back -log titles from the last two weeks, if you have been reading them.
