Help readers bloom this summer (or anytime) by encouraging independent reading.
Students who do not read for pleasure often fall substantially behind their classmates who do read for pleasure during the summer months. Choice makes an important contribution to achievement.
Reading success is cumulative, as is reading decline.
When we practice anything, whether it be golf, basketball, knitting, or reading, we get better at it. Modern students need to understand the joys of choosing your own subject matter to read.
Designed for easy use by teachers and parents, this packet includes:
1. Instructions for use
2. Parent Letter
3. High level comprehension questions
3. Blog Post Links from Reading Spotlight that include links to good Book Lists.
4. Summer Reading Record Sheet
Only one question has to be answered, but all questions are based on educational research about what actually motivates kids to read more.
The set also includes free or inexpensive ideas for parents and teachers to use as incentives because everyone needs a little bit of encouragement sometimes.
