Welcome to the 2021 Monthly Key Word Reading Challenge! We’re so excited to be back for another year of reading with you!
HOW IT WORKS

~ Synonyms and suffixes are allowed. For example, if the keyword is ‘Lake’ you may also use the words ‘Lakes’, ‘Water’, ‘Sea’, ‘Ocean’. Consult Thesaurus.com for appropriate synonyms.
~ A check in post will be published here on the blog and on Instagram each month. You can link up on the blog posts to announce your completion of that months challenge using the hashtag #monthlykeywordgxo
