Spartans Read Together

Throughout March, all elementary schools will be participating in an all-district book club called Spartans Read Together.

Student’s received a copy of this year’s book, Life According to Og the Frog, at a special school-wide assembly introducing the program and the book. Along with the book, they received a reading schedule so that you can keep up at home and a special bookmark highlighting the program’s sponsors. NEW THIS YEAR – Students can be on the lookout for Og the Frog around town! If they find Og five times and collect his sticker, they’ll be entered into a drawing to win a FREE Amazon kindle!

In school, your child will be invited to answer daily trivia questions to encourage and reward attentive listening during your family reading time. You will soon find that your child will take pride in knowing and anticipating the details of the story. In class, students will explore the book through activities and discussion. You will want to make sure your family keeps up so that your child can be included. Throughout the month, everyone at school and home will be talking about Og the Frog!

We know that you’ll enjoy this special reading time with your children. The Sycamore Elementary Staff looks forward to sharing this book with you and your child. With your help, we can build a community of readers within our school district.

Thank you for your assistance with this special project! We can’t wait to begin reading together!
