3 Ways to Help

images-1Your child has made tremendous progress this year. However, that hard work can be forgotten over the summer without frequent practice. Here are three ways that you can help your child maintain skills this summer.

1. Private one-on-one tutoring

This is an excellent way to help your child practice skills that have been learned this year. Fortunately, there are fabulous teachers at Georgetown that are providing private tutoring. Contact them soon, so that you have this support in place for the summer.

2. Open Library at Georgetown School

Our school library will be open on Tuesdays throughout June and July (10:00-12:00). We will have leveled books available as well as regular library books. Classroom teachers will be there to help your child find some great books.

3. Raz-Kids.com

This online reading website will be available for your child to use throughout the summer. This program, paid for by our wonderful Parent Club, provides leveled books that your child can listen to and read. There are also online rewards that your child can earn by completing comprehension quizzes on books that have been read.

Encourage your child to read every day. Continuous practice grows confident readers!!!

Summer Reading

I am extremely proud of my students this year. Please keep your child reading throughout this summer (Raz-kids, trips to the library, Book Box reading). I will reassess your child in the fall to determine any reading support needs for second grade.

♥ Don’t forget… our Georgetown School Library will be open this summer on Tuesdays (10:00-12:00 am) during June and July. Students may check out 2 library books and 2 WEB books each week!!!!

Have a wonderful summer!
