WCHE Library Summer Reading Challenge

The best way to become a better reader is to spend time reading.


Did you know that when kids don’t read over the summer they are likely to fall behind when they head back to school? These learning losses are often called the “Summer Slide,” and our school has made it a priority to keep our students’ skills sharp by encouraging them to read all summer long. Spending just 20 minutes of reading time each day will make a dramatic difference in your child’s success in the coming school years.


Our school will be participating in a summer reading challenge developed with input by WCHE students. Set a goal, read some new books in fun places, and be smarter than ever when you read over the summer!


If you need suggestions for books, here are summer reading lists from the Association for Library Service to Children:

K-2

3-5 List

6-8 List

Remember to visit our local libraries for fun reading programs and lots of great books!

Have a great summer filled with fun, adventure...and READING!
