Summer Reading Program 2021 : Tails and Tales: Home

Summer Reading Program 2021


Welcome to the 2021 Summer Reading Program for any independent reader from Kindergarten through Adult.

First, we ask you to register.  Since we need to have a virtual reading club we need to know who to notify and who to track for reading.  You can join the club anytime between June 1 and July 31, 2021, but the earlier you join the more you can read!  You can register HERE.

This year's theme is "Tails and Tales" and covers books related to animals.  However, you are still free to read whatever interests you.  The main thing is to READ! 

We will be tracking the time you spend reading, not the number of books - and that's another thing - we want you to count anything that you read - books, newspapers, magazines - or you can listen to audiobooks!

Speaking of age groups - if you're not sure which group you should sign up for see the next box over entitled "Age Groups" - you'll find our suggestions for which group.  Note that grades 3 and 6 have options, depending on their reading skills and interest levels.

Age Groups

Please note that although we do have a section for Preschool we will not be doing any specific programming for that age group.  If you think your child can understand you might want them to watch some of the Early Reader programmings, but no supplies or handouts will be available.  Our main focus is on independent readers.

The age groups for grades K-12 are based on the grade just finished, not their upcoming grade.

Those who have finished grade 3 may opt to join either Early Readers or Middle Readers.  Those who have finished grade 6 may opt to either join Middle Readers or Middle School Readers.  Choose the group based on your child's interests and reading levels.
