Summer Reading

Reading Between The Lions 2021
  Bingo your story! 

Welcome to NDCL's Summer Reading Headquarters!  Please read carefully all of the information below. Direct any questions to Mrs. Amy Myers.  Happy reading!
NDCL's school wide summer reading program is aimed at providing an opportunity for students to engage in reading in a positive way to encourage life long learning and to build community.  
1. Read what you want, when you want
2. Record what you read,
3. Repeat! 
Get your eyes off of the screen and into a book! This year, the NDCL Learning Community challenges you to read what you want, when you want and how much you want!  The sky is the limit!  Our main goal is to get you reading and enjoying all the benefits reading has for your mind, body and soul! 

So let's Bingo your story!
Below is a bingo card with reading challenges for you to complete over the summer.  Complete as many as you want to earn entries into awesome prizes that you won't want to pass up! Complete single spaces for one entry or complete a row or column (five in a row up, down, left, right or diagonal) for 10 entries! Complete as many spaces or bingo's as you want--the more you READ the more chances you have to win!!! For each space you complete, fill out the online form to record your progress and claim your entries!
Is participation in this program required?
Yes and No, participation in NDCL's Reading Between the Lions reading Bingo program for 2021 is optional but strongly encouraged as reading is so important for the mind, body and soul! 
However, any summer reading assigned to you by your classroom teachers IS REQUIRED.  Please see above for details for each class, information will also be posted to Blackboard.
How do I report what I have read?
Each participant should record their reading information on the online form to receive official entries into the prize. It is quick and easy to do!  Keep track on your own Bingo card as well to keep track of your own progress if you like. You can download a copy of the bingo card HERE. Upon return to school, we will calculate entries for each student based on the online form entries. Complete as many spaces as you want to increase your chances of winning!
What are the requirements of this year's program--what do students have to do?
Participation is completely optional, but encouraged. If you choose to be a part of the program, all you need to do is read and record what you are reading this summer! Your English teacher may have assigned you additional summer reading assignments, that is NOT optional!

My English teacher assigned summer reading, do I have to read those books?
Yes!  Any summer work assigned by your teachers is separate from the NDCL summer reading program, Reading Between The Lions. Please follow all instructions given to you by your individual teachers.  But, any books you are required to read by your teachers count for the Bingo challenge! Please find the English Department's required summer reading information at the top of this page.
Who should I contact if I have questions?
Any questions can be emailed to Library Media Specialist, Amy Myers. 
Upon return to school we will dedicate a day to celebrate the joy of reading with activities, games, prizes, more prizes and more prizes, and, yes, more! So, be sure to get in on the action!
