How to Include Reading in Your Child’s Summer
Help your child maintain essential reading skills during the coming months. Avoid “summer slide” by keeping your child engaged in fun reading activities all summer long. Try these easy ways to enjoy summer reading together…
Read All About It: If you’re planning a summer vacation, read a book about the destination with your child.
Critic’s Corner: Set aside 15 minutes a day for family reading time. Have your child keep a daily reading log and encourage her to give a “review” of each book she completes.
A Day at the Beach: Help your child practice reading and spelling skills by writing lists of rhyming words (e.g., sand, land, band) in the sand.
Gardening A to Z: With your child, make a list of the types of flowers or vegetables in your garden. Write the names on index cards, and have your child put the words in alphabetical order.
Word Play: Pull out one of your old favorites! Games such as Boggle and Scrabble help reinforce reading and spelling skills.
