What can families do during the summer?
- Virtually visit the public library to check out books and participate in summer reading programs.
- Have a routine time for reading with your child.
- Be a reader and writer yourself. Share what you are reading with your children.
- Read aloud to your reader.
- Encourage your child to choose the books she or he reads. Self-selection is important for motivation.
- Encourage your child to write – postcards, letters, emails, journals and sticky notes.
