Summer Reading Instructions
Summer Reading Program 2016
Our theme this year is
A bento is a box into which several items of food are artistically arranged.
Everything you need for a balanced meal is held within the bento.
You may have seen lunch items arranged artistically in a bento box or food from a Japanese restaurant.
We are using that idea as a guide for Summer Reading!!
At Cosby, we want you to read everything you need for becoming a well-balanced person.
You may read eBooks or listen to audiobooks, but watching the movie version of a book DOES NOT COUNT!
Follow the steps below to participate in Cosby High School’s Summer Reading Program.
You MUST write at least 1 review of a book read during the summer.
(You may write a review of all the books you read)
Please use Google Chrome as your browser for this information!
1.) Enroll in www.Goodreads.com which is a free online source for keeping track of all the book you read.
2.) Follow these detailed instructions to start your account. *You must use your CCPS Google account to access!*
3.) Start reading, recording and reviewing !!

See the BIG prizes below!!!
Make your own Bento Box!
Design your own Bento based on a Book!
Using materials that might be found in a Bento, construct a 3-D Bento Box which details the characters, plot, setting, theme and point of view of your book. Use your imagination and creativity -- consider the fact that a traditional Bento contains foods from different food groups and that the sum of their parts make a whole.
You do not need to purchase materials, you can use items you have around your house.
Think of this as a book report, but much more fun.
Each student who creates a Bento Book Report will get between 1 and 5 extra tickets (depending on the quality and originality of the Bento Box)!!
