Roes Readers At Home!

Reading is a great way to keep busy and when you find a book you like, it is a lot of fun. Instead of missing time to get your reading punch cards filled, let’s keep going and get those reading minutes in – now you have lots of time! You can read books you already have at home or try some of these suggestions for access to free books to read:

Websites:  Amazon, Goodreads, FreeChildrenStories.com, FreeKidsBooks.org, Magic Keys, Read.gov, Enchanted Book Promotions, BookBub, FunBrain, Kids World Fun

Apps:  Libby, Overdrive

As always, practice safe internet usage.  The Club is not affiliated with nor do we endorse any of these sites and make sure your parents know what you are doing, check to make sure the sites are still safe to use and make the initial set up.

Club member's who have started your punch cards - keep going.  Club members who have yet to begin this is a great opportunity to get reading minutes completed. Print off the sheet HERE to keep track of your reading progress. (If you do not have access to a printer, you can make your own form on a piece of paper.) Keep track of your sheets and turn them in to receive your stars when we can all get back to the Club.

Bonus Activity:  Click HERE for a Book Review sheet you can print off and complete for extra stars.
