Hi everyone!  Welcome to Read 52...

...where we'll read a book every week, or 52 a year!

Thanks for joining us in our learning community.  


What will you find here?

Each Monday, I'll post a new book for your child to read.  (A list will be provided with upcoming books so that you can buy or borrow them in time.) I'll also post activities your child can do at home to go along with the book. Depending on the tier you choose, your child can also participate by discussing the book in the comments section (unmoderated), through a Flipgrid board (moderated), or one-on-one with Miss Mindy. We'll discuss the book and share the projects that we created.  You can go back and look at previous posts, but only the current week will be active for discussion.

What ages should join?

This is geared toward 4th through 6th grade, but younger advanced students are welcome.  Books will be content appropriate for upper elementary schools.

Who is Miss Mindy?

I am a teacher with 17 years experience in elementary and middle schools. I have my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and my Masters Degree in Gifted Education. I am passionate about designing curriculum and authentic, powerful learning for children. 

Why join us?

Join us because your child is an avid reader and you would like your child to be part of a community of kids who are readers just like your child.  Join us because you want your child to talk about books and branch off into new research sparked by their reading.  Join us because your child likes to be challenged with thoughtful activities, discussions, and experiments. 

How do I join?

Choose your tier. On Patreon, they're called "rewards" and are listed to the right.  Once you've joined, you'll have access to all the material that has been and will be posted. Look for this under the "Posts" tab at the top.  If you choose the Personalized Reward, I'll contact you to develop a plan to meet your needs.

Thanks again!  

Feel free to email with any question you have.
