Windsor Middle School Summer Reading Program Information
WMS won a Spotlight on Literacy grant to provide a paperback Will Hobbs novel for each student transitioning from sixth to seventh grade.
Each student will be asked to choose a Will Hobbs book to read over summer break, blog with classmates on Edmodo (monitored by Miss Hash), attend related assemblies/guest speaker presentations during first quarter, and take a 14 point reading counts quiz during first quarter of seventh grade.
The first semester of the seventh grade year is very busy, we are hoping that the students will choose to participate in the summer reading program to help reach their reading counts goal with ease. We are also hoping that students will have less of a back-slide in reading ability over summer break by reading just one chapter (5 pages) each day.
The Windsor Middle School library will be open on Thursdays, in the month of June, from 8 am to noon for any students/parents who wish to use the computers, library books, or reference section.
The Jefferson County Public library is open during the summer for computer use and also has copies of the Will Hobbs books in print and audiobooks. In addition, students may go to www.catalistdigital.com/students LI: windsor PW: goowls to download an audio copy Go Big or Go Home.
Guest Speakers/Assemblies for Summer Reading Participants:
- Tom Guy Multi-Media Rewind (New Technologies)
- World Bird Sanctuary
- Monsanto Science
- Fun Factor
- Humane Society of MO
