Reading Challenges

A Winter Reading Challenge

One joy that December brings is time to spend with family, friends and doing activities that we love so much. It is my hope that one of the activities that students will engage in over the winter break is reading. Over the next few weeks the librarians will be putting out book list, challenges and invitations to keep the Wheeler Community reading all winter long. Here are a few challenges for our Lower School Community. 

Challenge 1: Read a book about a winter sport.

Challenge 2: Think about all the books you've read this year and choose your favorite. Read it again, ask yourself what made this book so special? Share this book with your family and/or friends.

Challenge 3: Read a book by an author who has a first or last name that starts with the same letter as yours.
