Summer Reading Resources
Spring testing has come to an end for yet another school year. The students have all worked very hard to show what they know. I hope that everyone has a wonderful summer! A well earned break from all the hard work is always something everyone looks forward to, however, it is important to still find ways to incorporate learning into your summer months. The saying, “If you don’t use it, you lose it”, is not what anyone wants to happen. There are some great resources out there that can help your child continue to use all they have learned and practice it over the summer:
- Summer Reading Programs: Check out your local libraries. Most libraries have fun summer themed programs for kids of all ages.
- Make reading part of your every day, even if it is just for a few minutes. Whether it is making a favorite recipe, reading signs as you are driving in your car, bedtime stories, etc. Find parts of your day where you can add time to read.
- Set a good example for your child. Show them that you, too, enjoy reading.
- Audio books are fun to listen to.
- Read stories using different voices for the characters. Have fun!
- Ask questions about the story. What do you think will happen next? What is this? How does this character feel?
- Have your child retell the story to you in their own words.
