The Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Club is back! Kids in grades 1-6 can receive a free book from Barnes & Noble by reading 8 books over the summer. They will need to fill out a Summer Reading Journal and bring the journal to a B&N location between May 21st and September 3, 2013 to choose a free book.
You can also download a FREE Activity and Teaching Summer Reading kit full of helpful tips and printables.
Summer reading is not only fun, but essential for learning. Did you know that it can take 4-6 weeks of school time to regain reading skills lost over the summer? A tremendous gift that you can give your child is to commit to a summer of reading. Here are some great ideas posted on the educational blog, No Time for Flash Cards. Happy reading!!
I am proud of the great progress that students have made this year. However, that hard work can be forgotten over the summer without frequent practice. I strongly recommend tutoring to maintain the important 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.
