WMS Summer Reading w/ Flipgrid Update

This year, Wredling’s recommended reading list is in the form of a bucket list challenge.

With the excitement of summer upon us, we know that you are looking for some fun and relaxing reads to keep your brain in gear over the next few months! This year, Wredling's recommended reading list is in the form of a bucket list challenge. We are challenging students to cross off bucket list items as they enjoy some new reads and relax this summer. View the flyer advertising our bucket list challenge.

This program will encourage our Redhawks to experience a variety of genres and share their thinking with our learning community. The Summer Reading Bucket List has titles for all readers to enjoy! Please note that the books listed are mere suggestions - students are free to read other books that fit within the various categories. Here our Google slideshow explaining the challenge and providing several book trailers to check out!

For each book read, students need to create a short Flipgrid video reflection. In the fall, we will hold raffles to award prizes to students who participate. To create a book review, students will visit flipgrid.com and enter the flip code: b76b55. The password then is REDHAWKS. There is a teacher example provided to get students started.

We have received some more questions regarding how to access our Summer Reading Flipgrid. Hopefully, this 2-minute tutorial will provide clarification or assistance. We look forward to seeing the videos of our Redhawk Readers!


Happy reading!
