We are excited to share this great resource for Silicon Valley Reads 2021. The toolkit, which can be found at https://bit.ly/SVReads2021, provides ideas and lesson plans for educators to engage in with their students to encourage the love of reading. This year's theme is “Connecting” which is even more crucial now during the pandemic as we value our relationships more than ever before.
As part of Silicon Valley Reads, we invite TK-12 students in Santa Clara County to participate in a multimedia contest. Details for the contest can be found on page 3 of the toolkit. The Multimedia Contest Submission form can be accessed at https://bit.ly/SVReadsContest2021. Students can submit their project between February 15 - February 28, 2021. We encourage you to share this wonderful opportunity with the staff and students in your community.
