#DistanceLearningTpT This product is perfect for those of you doing distance/remote learning due to school closures!

Prevent the summer slide! How often do your students show up in the beginning of the school year and have not done the required summer reading? How many students DID the reading but hated the book? Take away the stress of forcing students to read books they don't want to, but also make sure they get in their much needed reading!

This product provides you with guidelines for your students to choose any book they'd like to read. No list. They can read anything, yes anything. I promise you, they will read if they can choose! There are suggested lists included, though. Also, for my own classes, I created a list of my students' favorite books that school year and had the students add the books to a Padlet site. That link could be included, too, for incoming students!

Another motivator included here is a collaborative reading record. You would share this link with future students before the school year ends. In this Google Slide digital notebook, they add their books to digital shelves, quickly rate them, and see what their peers are reading. This will encourage them to try new books!

In order to use this product, students have to have access to Google Accounts over the summer. Additionally, it would be helpful if you had a decent knowledge of Slides and sharing Slides. I do provide directions, though!

Alleviate the pressure and have your students come to school in the beginning of the year already prepared to read.

This goes great with my Reading Record: Digital Interactive Notebook for Students' Independent Reading!
