Summer Reading

Parents, did you know your child can slide back as far as half a grade 

level if reading is not practiced over 

the summer?  Continuing reading 

and math practice is important.  

It can also be fun. Look at the 

public library for books of math 

games, puzzles, and activities.  Reading practice doesn't have to be arduous. For those who love stories there are many lists of great books 

and lots of popular series books.  

Magazines, comic books, graphic novels, newspapers, and non-fiction make great reading too! 

Be sure to check out the summer reading lists here!

Is Summer Going too Fast? 
The New York Times
Pediatrics Group to 
Recommend Reading Aloud to Children From Birth
"With parents increasingly handing smartphones and tablets to babies, who learn how to swipe before they can turn a page, reading aloud may be fading into the background. "'The reality of today's world is that we're competing with portable digital media,' said Dr. Alanna Levine, a pediatrician in Orangeburg, N.Y. 'So you really want to arm parents with tools and rationale behind it about why it's important to stick to the basics of things like books."
