Summer Reading Program 2020 Junior High

Summer Reading Program     

 

We have partnered with Beanstack, an online reading tracking program to help us provide a simple, fun way for families to log their reading progress all summer long. It will help you report on time spent reading or listening, the books you read, the reviews you write, and the activity challenges you take on.

You can join the program online at Acton Memorial Beanstack or download the Beanstack app    available from the major app stores.

Email the Children’s Department at actchildrens@minlib.net if you have any questions.

Game of Categories sheet, instructions are in the textCategories        How many facts do you have at your fingertips?    

How to play Categories. Any number of people can play, individuals or teams. Each player or team needs a worksheet and pencil.(Print this one out or use your own paper)

Decide how long the game will last, 5 or 10 minutes. The aim of the game is to name an item or thing that matches the category on the left and begins with the letter above each column.

When everyone is ready, start the timer and start thinking. When time is up the players take turns naming their answer for each category. A player gets one point for each answer that no other player has. The player with the most points wins. You can see how easy it is to make your own category game.

You need 5 categories, can be anything. Next a 5 letter word without duplicates and don’t use the letters Q, X, or Z. Make your own box with 25 sections, 5 across and 5 down. The 5 categories are on the left outside the box and the 5 letter word across the top, above the box. Take turns choosing the categories and the words.
