I am so proud of the progress students made this year in reading.  Studies show that students who continue to read during the summer continue to make gains in their reading comprehension.  Students who do not read lose gains made during the school year and take time during the fall to catch up with their reading peers.
Make reading fun this summer and nurture a love for reading! 
Summer Reading Tips-
*Encourage reading every day
*Start a Book Club with your child/Read a book together and talk about the book 
*Reinforce and practice decoding  strategies like- flip the sound, read around the word and go back to it using context clues, chunk the word, etc...  
*Practice comprehension strategies by having your child stop periodically and tell you what has happened in the story- Ask them Who? What? Why? 
*Listen to audio books to reinforce story plot and themes in stories, it is also great for modeling fluency
*Model reading at home, talk about what you are reading
*Create a Family Reading Challenge/How many books can your family read this summer?  
*Visit Wonderopolis (On our Sqworl Page)  
There is a lot to Read and Wonder about on this amazing resource plus they just added an audio component!
*Find a great book and read out loud to your child 
Celebrate Reading This Summer!
