Get Ready for #KidlitSummerSchool

KLSS 2015 BadgeWelcome Summer Schoolers! Are you getting yourselves mentally prepared for school to start? We hope so — we’ll be kicking things off on Monday, July 20! Here are some things to look forward to…

The Facebook  Group 
We encourage everyone who is on FB AND who has registered for Kidlit Summer School to ask to join the Kidlit Summer School FB group. You can still participate in Kidlit Summer School if you are not on FB, but this is a place to meet your classmates! We also answer questions there. If you have registfbered for Kidlit Summer School, have asked to be added to the FB group, and did not get added within a day, it may be because your FB name did not match up with your registration name. Please double check this.

#30mdare is back!

Petruck WabiSabi Color (3)This year, Rebecca Petruck will post prompts on Twitter and Facebook twice a week so students have the freedom to arrange group dares that suit their schedules and time zones, or do them on their own. The only “rule” is to set a timer and go without stopping for 30 minutes. Prompts will be posted Tuesday at 9p ET and Saturday at 10a ET, which means there will be a total of seven prompts. GIVEAWAY: Students who complete at least five will be entered to win a 20-page critique and follow-up phone call from Rebecca.

 To get prompts, check the Twitter hashtag #30mdare or visit the KidLit Summer School group on Facebook. For more information about #30mdare, click HERE.
