Summer Reading (Part 3)

June 17, 2010

We’ve talked a lot about how fun summer reading can be. But, it is also really important for students to have consistent reading challenges over the summer as a combatant to losing three months of reading practice and skills.

Now as many schools are closing up for the summer I thought it would be helpful to pull together a few resources, there are some great programs out there. A quick Google search returned hundreds of reading lists as well as reading programs and suggestions for parents.

For instance, check this out, a kit for families to help maintain reading levels over the summer. Your local libraries typically have summer reading lists and suggestions. Check out the Reading Rockets Program which provides a variety of ideas and resources as well as book lists. The NEH site offers reading lists by age range.  I could go on and on.

What are your favorite summer time reads? What do your kids love to read? Right now I have “How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Dogs” and “Goodnight Moon” memorized as that is Colin’s current favorite as well as any type of flap book (he’s very curious these days).

Any suggestions to share?

Little by Little,
