LP's Summer Readers are taking Biblionasium by storm! Wow! In all, LP's readers have read over 35,000 pages and more than 300 books so far this summer! Some of our most inspired readers are nearing 3,000 pages as of yesterday.
Sounds like it is time for a challenge. All Biblionasium participants should receive an invitation to the first LP Reads Summer Reading Challenge, which handily aligns with our genre goal to read one poetry book this summer. Students will receive an invitation to the challenge the next time they log in to their account. It will appear in their feed like this:
Click on "Here" to start the challenge, which can be completed at any time over the summer. Students will earn a badge for reading just one poetry book. If challenges seem seem like an effective way to motivate and or reward your reader, Biblionasium gives students the ability to create their own challenges (see below) or for parents/teachers to do so as well.
If you have suggestions about challenges you would like LP Reads to run for everyone -- or even just for your student -- let us know and we'll get those going for you. For now, here are a few poetry book recommendations that may help with this first challenge.
