you for another wonderful year of reading.
I have greatly enjoyed working with students in our Kindergarten E.L.I.
program and first grade Reading Recovery. As you start to plan your summer
activities, remember to allow time for summer reading. Summer reading is one way to maintain the
literacy skills your child has gained this school year. Literacy experts agree that children of all
ages need to, read by themselves, be read to and talk about the stories they
have enjoyed. Enjoying books throughout
the summer will help maintain reading skills, improve reading fluency and
provide the opportunity to learn new vocabulary and concepts. Most importantly, when children and parents
enjoy reading time together, children develop a love of books and reading that
lasts a lifetime.
HAVE A WONDERFUL SUMMER!
