As your family reads this summer, OCPS encourages you to share the literacy message via Twitter. Using the hashtag, #OCPSreads, we hope our students (over 13 years of age) and parents will share what you are reading, where you are reading and how much you are reading. Utilize the hashtag when posting pictures of books and fun places that students read over the summer, too.

Visit the OCPS LaunchPad to access the Beanstack app for your students to log the minutes they spend reading this Summer and keep track of all the great books they read. When students reach designated milestones while logging reading minutes, they are entered to win great prizes.

Here are a few easy ways to include reading as part of your every day during the summer, even when you are on the go! The Sora app provides students and teachers with access to eBooks and audiobooks and includes over 100 titles in Spanish. The Sora app is available for free on iTunes and the app store. You can also find it in the Library Research Tools folder on LaunchPad. Holds for popular titles can be made through the Sora app (Spanish Version).
