How to keep them reading over the summer!



Summer is suppose to be fun, so please make sure to keep it fun.    I know as a mom of three elementary kids, I struggle with that balance and the ongoing reminders from my daughters that it is summer they shouldn’t have to read.    To take the pressure off of mom (ME!) I usually try to get them linked into a summer reading program that has some sort of reward or prize that they are interested in earning.     Below is a link to a pretty concise list of different choices that are out there for summer reading.     Give yourself a break too and try offering one of these options to increase summer reading.     Summer reading does allow all children to continue to increase fluency levels and reinforce comprehension skills.
