Summer Stories

What Are Summer Stories?

"Your opinions are not that interesting (but your stories are)" - Priya Parker

This summer we want Beverly students to spend some time interacting with different stories - and creating some of your own.

Stories can live in books, but they can live in lots of other places too, so that's why we're calling it Summer Stories this year. We want you to explore the many ways that we create and share stories.

Ms. Woznick, Mrs. Fecteau and Meghan Karasin attempt to explain it to you - and each other.

Summer Stories Choice Board

Pick and do several activities from the choice board below that interest you, at least one from each of the two sections. Track your stories over the summer to show this to your ELA teacher in the fall and then complete other work in class related to this for a Q1 grade in grades 6+.

Make both Read - Listen - Watch choices and Connect - Create - Share choices that allow you to interact with what you've been consuming and with others who have too.

If you want fewer choices, try the Streamlined Summer Stories Choice Board. If you just want some ideas for good books, we've got that too!

Be sure to sign up for the Beverly Public Library's Summer Reading program with Beanstack. It's for kids, teens AND adults. Track what you read and other activities through the library and you can win prizes!
