With summer just around the corner, many parents are busy planning summer activities and schedules. Please think about what your child will be reading this summer and build that into your plans. The public library is a great resource for you and your family. They offer fabulous materials in print and electronic resources.
Research continues to show that students who have access to books of interest to them read more and are able to maintain (and even grow) in their reading skills over the summer. The public library is a great free resource for your family, but having a home library is also a great way to keep your kids reading.
Your Home Library
My favorite images of the book fair are of students leaving our space with stacks of 6-8 brand new books for $20. Amazing!
If you or your child missed out of the book fair but would like to order books for summer, feel free to order here. Classroom Code: LCX6M
I will submit orders on Friday, May 17th and deliver them to students when they arrive.
