Summer Reading Challenge
We will be participating an IHES Summer Reading Challenge this year. Students that reach their goal and return their log will be able to check out an extra book next year. Reading logs were sent home last week. If you would like to log minutes online, the username and password are in the upper-hand right corner of the reading log.
For more information about the IHES Reading Challenge (or any of our reading programs), please see our reading programs page on the library website.

Help your child find “right fit” books. Right fit books are books that are of high interest to your child and are not beyond their reading level. You can use the five finger test to determine if the book is too difficult for your child. Open the book to a page with many words.
Have your child begin reading the text. Hold up a finger for each word he/she does not know. If you have 4 or 5 fingers up, the text may be too difficult for your child to read independently - feel free to still check out the book! It just may be a book you want to read with your child.
Play games with words or adding and subtracting. Commercial games such as Apples to Apples improves vocabulary. You can easily turn a game of hopscotch or 4 square into a game that incorporates learning letters, reading or spelling sight words, addition, subtraction, or even multiplication!
