#SixtyBooks is a reading movement.
It’s a simple pledge that we can all make by stating:

“I will make reading
a regular part of my daily routine.”

Teachers, parents, students, and people all over the globe are joining this reading challenge using the link above.  We are communicating through blog posts, Twitter, and Goodreads as well as 

We also have over 150 elementary students at Millstone River involved who are joining through a Google Classroom created specifically for their age group.  

As they read, they are also learning how they can track their books through many digital tools such as Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Maps. They are having conversations with their peers in person and using Google Classroom as a backchannel for the discussion. Students are also being introduced to blog memes, vlogging, and sites to create their own stories or book trailers such as Powtoon and Animoto.

At all levels, both students and adults are joining together to make reading and sharing their reading experiences a priority in their lives. 

If you would like more information about #Sixtybooks to find out how you can join or get your students involved, please contact the Teacher Resource Specialist for Technology in your building.  :)
