Schools out but studies are not!

School may be out, but it doesn’t mean kids should not be doing some summer reading. Have them read about things they love, funny humorous texts, and even books they may have read before. It is easy to find lists from your local library of titles that are popular at each grade level for kids in the summer. Get elementary age kids signed up for the summer reading program at your local library. Let older kids find books that are FUN for them. If you don’t believe me, here is a good article by Hannah Mac Lellen, a literacy expert, about why it is so important to have kids read over the summer. http://www.homeeddirectory.com/blog/%E2%80%98school%E2%80%99s-out%E2%80%99-%E2%80%A8should-literacy-intervention-still-be
