Summer Reading 2017

Summer reading is SO important for all students to maintain reading progress.  There are any number of reading programs that students can participate in for the summer months.  You can do them all or none at all, but keep reading!  It will make a big difference in your child’s academic progress for the next year.   I recommend at least 20 minutes per day – 5 days a week.

More details about SUMMER READING…

The Henrico County Public Library has a terrific reading program each summer.  Their theme this year is Build A Better World – through reading.  Students are awarded some wonderful prizes for participating in the program.  Students must register online and record their reading on the summer reading calendar. Flyers from the Henrico Public Library will be sent home with students.

Last year we won the Tuckahoe Trophy for the most FINISHERS in the summer reading program for our district.  Let’s win it again!  Go online and register today. Keep reading, kiddos!

 *Since the Maybeury Library is closed over the summer, we encourage all of our students to make good use of the local public libraries.  There are always lots of fun activities going on at the library.  You can pick up a program guide at any branch library.

What are you reading this summer?

summerreadingI hope you’re doing some great reading this summer!  I’ve finished a couple kids books so far.  I just finished El Deafo by CeeCee Bell.  It is this year’s Newbery Award winner.  I loved it!  It’s based on the author’s real life, and really gives you an idea of what it’s like to be deaf.  She tells the story with sensitivity, but she has a great sense of humor too.  I also read Barrel of Laughs, a Vale of Tears by Jules Feiffer.  It’s been on my wish list for a long time.  It’s an unusual book — really a fable for life.  This would be a great book for families to read together.  Next children’s book on my list — Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin.  I’ve been wanting to read that one for a long time.  I can’t wait!  So — what are you reading???
