Summer reading paid off in a super fun way for hundreds of Indian Lake Elementary School students.

A record number – 230 – first through fifth graders turned in completed reading logs indicating they read at least 30 times during the summer.

ILES reading guru Fisherwoman Frieda led a Summer Reading Celebration assembly to congratulate all the readers and discuss what special strategies the kids used to sound out words and comprehend stories they read. This summer’s slogan was “Have a Ball—Read!”

ILES reading teacher Elaine Jacobs said the extra special incentives this year really motivated the kids.

After giving Frieda a high-five, students who turned in the logs chose new books, enjoyed an extra recess, took home bouncy balls and went outside to throw a pie in the face of a teacher and throw a ball to dunk the principal in the dunk tank!

Because second graders brought in the most reading logs, those who read also received glow-in-the-dark, full-sized bouncy balls.
