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.
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! We hope everyone has a chance to visit their local library throughout the summer and find books they want to read.
