Summer Reading Challenge

 

It's almost the end of the school year and Superintendent Denise Juneau issues a challenge to all Montana students. She is asking them to read six books over the course of the summer as part of her Summer Six Reading Challenge.  Students who read during the school break have a much better chance of starting school in the fall ready to learn. 

 

[Take the challenge yourself! (Sorry, you won't be eligible for prizes, however ...) Suggestions include the list of excellent books that are the foundation of the OPI IEFA language arts units: IEFA Curriculum Resources
