I would like to remind you to encourage your children to continue reading consistently throughout the summer. You may find the following suggestions helpful in making your child’s summer reading more effective and enjoyable:
- Help your child choose good-fit books—books that match your child’s reading level and interests.
- Try to set a consistent reading schedule of at least 20 minutes per day.
- Make reading a social activity with discussions and activities.
You might wish to get your child involved in a summer reading program. A couple of suggestions are the programs available through the public library and through Barnes and Noble.
Continuing to read through the summer will help your child maintain the skills he/she gained during the school year.
Thank you so much to all of you who participated in our Usborne Book Fair. It was quite successful, and we enjoyed learning more about these books. If you would like to order from Usborne, please go to mscsbookworms.com. The school will continue to receive credit for books ordered there. Thank you again.
