Keep Your Child's Reading Skills Sharp Over the Summer

Keep Your Child's Reading Skills Sharp Over the Summer

Children's reading skills tend to slip over the summer without some support from parents.  Like the public libraries in many communities. (check to see) the Surrey Public Library is offering a summer reading program that will help your child retain their reading levels.  All students from Kindergarten to Grade 7 would benefit from this program.  Click this link to go to the Surrey Public Library's Information Site.  There are also enrichment reading programs run throughout the summer.

For ways to support your child's reading during the summer, click on these links for some tips from the library.  These documents come in a variety of languages such as English, Punjabi and Spanish.

Another great resource for parents can be found at the TeachThough Site.  They have a list of 12 Resources & 13 Ideas To Slow Summer Reading Loss that I would highly recommend.
