A Collaborative Approach to Summer Reading
The Cobb County School District’s Library Media Education and English Language Arts Departments have partnered with the Cobb County Public Library (CCPL) to provide complementary summer reading programs for grades K-5. The theme for this summer’s K-5 reading program is “Dig into Reading!”
The Cobb County Public Library provides reading logs for elementary students to document their reading throughout the summer. Prior to returning to school in August, participants will submit their reading logs to any CCPL branch. Any books read for the Cobb County School District program can be listed on the CCPL log. For more information about summer events at the public library, please visit www.cobbcat.org/srp.
To participate in the Cobb County School District/Murdock summer reading program, students will select books to read and complete suggested activities for them. Any books read for the Cobb County Public Library program can also be used with the CCSD program activities.
The CCSD/Murdock program includes:
Two suggested reading lists: one for Primary and one for Intermediate, each paired with an activity sheet. (Please note that these are just suggestions. Students may choose to read any age and level-appropriate book. Consult your public librarian for additional recommendations).
To participate, students should:
1. Read a book of their choice.
2. Choose and complete an activity (from either sheet as appropriate) for the book they read.
3. Repeat #1 and #2 until at least four books and four activities have been read and completed.
4. On the activity sheet, have a parent initial the four (or more) activities completed and then turn in the signed activity sheet to your Media Specialist during the first week of school.
5. Record the titles of ALL books read during the summer on the CCPL Summer Reading Log and turn it in to any CCPL branch to be eligible for a certificate and the CCPL End-of-Summer Celebration.
