Summer Reading Lists and Information
Summer is a great time for your child to practice what he/she has learned throughout the school year. There is no better activity for your child than to engage in reading for enjoyment. Not only will your child discover the joy of being lost in a book, he/she will practice the many skills and strategies he/she has learned all year.
Teachers and other educators identify summer learning loss as a major challenge when starting off the new school year. However, students who read over the summer return to school ready to continue their learning with little or no learning loss.
To encourage students to read, Ellicott Elementary is participating in the Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Program. The program is designed to reinforce learning and motivate students to continue reading throughout the summer. To participate students need to follow these three easy steps:
- Read any eight books this summer and record them in the Summer Reading Journal (click here to download)
- Bring your completed journal to Barnes & Noble by August 31, 2019.
- Choose a free book from the attached book list.
Summer reading is meant to be enjoyable and we do not want students to have to struggle; we want reading to be fun and relaxing. The important thing is that students read, read, read!
