Summer Reading Photo Challenge

Oliver and Sam Rebholz are reading book 2 from the “Wings of Fire” series and finding Waldo in “Where’s Waldo” ~ an oldie but a goodie book series! They are reading in an old train caboose tiny house we rented on our trip “up north”. Summer reading is all about fun! Find a book about something you love, grab a flashlight, and enjoy! ❤️Mrs Rebholz (Oliver and Sam’s mom)

Summer Reading PHOTO Challenge!

St. Sebastian students I challenge YOU to send me a photo this summer of you READING!  On the beach (careful for the waves!) – on a swing – in your backyard – around a campfire (careful for the flames!) – in your favorite sunny spot… WHEREVER!  Let me know what you are reading and why you are enjoying it too – maybe it will help someone else find a great book to pick-up this summer!

And remember, summer reading is all about reading for ENJOYMENT!  Find a book of jokes for a long car ride – a scary story for around the campfire – a good mystery to read under the covers!  Reading can also happen anywhere from the back of the cereal box at breakfast to reading and making the recipe for your favorite summer food.  I can’t wait to see how and what you read this summer!

Send your picture to my school email at:  Check this site regularly to see what everyone is reading!  Have fun!
