Presentation Transcript

  1. Summer Reading Students at Six to Six Magnet School read for 20 minutes or more nightly…EVEN in the summer.

  2. Avoid Summer Slide… This kind of summer slide is not wet, wild, or fun – but a 100 year old learning-loss phenomenon that affects our students every summer!! All young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer.

  3. Summer Slide As President Barack Obama pointed out in his proclamation for National Summer Learning Day (July 9, 2009), “A child who takes long breaks from learning can face academic setbacks. This problem is especially prominent during the summer, when students may lose more than two months of progress."

  4. What you can do… • Set aside a time EACH day for your child to read for at least 20 minutes. • Alternate between: • Your child reading independently • Listening to your child read • Reading to your child

  5. What you can do… • Make sure your child fills out his/her reading log daily • Make sure your child completes other assigned summer reading work Students who bring back their completed reading logs in September will receive a certificate as well as a classroom celebration!

  6. What you can do… • Make sure your child has the opportunity to read books at his/her independent reading level (a list of suggested titles at your child’s independent level will be available on our website) • Figure out topics that your child will want to read about (include biography, informational texts, magazines, newspapers, blogs about interesting topics, etc.)
