Winter break will be here soon! It's important that students continue reading even when they are out of school to prevent the "Winter Brain Freeze." One fun way to keep reading is to participate in the Winter Reading Challenge hosted by Oklahoma City Public Schools.
Students who read for 20 minutes a day during winter break (380 total minutes) can log their time to be eligible for prizes and recognition. To learn more about the Winter Reading Challenge, visit the OKC Public Schools website.
The Winter Brain Freeze is a period of time in which students do not engage in reading or learning activities and they may experience learning loss when going back to school. However, this can be prevented by reading for 20 minutes a day during winter break.
Don't forget, you can log your reading all year long through your Beanstack account with the library. Beanstack is the platform the library uses to log Summer Reading minutes, but it can be used at any time of year.
