Summer Reading Information 2018: 3 Great Ways to Encourage Reading
Summer Reading: myON e-books on myBackpack
This year APS purchased myON e-books for our students. These e-books can be accessed through myBackpack by clicking on the myON icon. To log in to myON, select BRANDON INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL and then use the student’s school username and password. After the student reads a book, they can take a 5 question quiz. The site recommends books to students based on an interest inventory and a Lexile assessment that students took this spring. As students successfully complete quizzes, the site increases the recommended book level to challenge the students. Our students have loved using this at school and it’s a wonderful resource for summer!
Atlanta-Fulton Public Library Summer Reading
Visit the Public Library after June 1 to participate in a great summer reading program! Elementary students can pick up a summer reading packet after June 1 and read 10 picture books or 5 chapter books. Each book title should be recorded on a reading log. When the students have completed their reading logs they turn it into the Public Library by August 1 for a Certificate of Completion and the chance to win some very cool prizes from the library.
Morris Brandon students who complete the Atlanta-Fulton Library Summer Reading program or complete 200 minutes on MyOn will receive a special prize within the first quarter of the 2018-19 school year. Students must bring in their certificates (printed from MyOn or from the public library) to Mrs. Ingram at the PC or Mrs. Lander at the MC!
