I posted about the Summer Slide earlier, and now I want to share some resources for you to use this summer to help your young scholar avoid Summer Slide in just 20 minutes a day! If you came to class on our Super Goal Day, you received a Summer Reading Packet, but if not, here’s some of what was inside (I can’t share all of it here because of copyrights):
Now, I’m going to tell you about the Diven Summer Reading Raffle! If every student reads 20 minutes every day all summer long, every student will start off the year having lost no reading skills! Read with or to your child, or have your child read to you. The cost to “buy” a raffle ticket is just your time:
- Read 120 Minutes Every Week to Earn 1 Raffle Ticket
- Read 120 Minutes Every Week & Write 5 Book Reviews to Earn 5 Raffle Tickets
- Read 120 Minutes Every Week & Write 10 Book Reviews to Earn 10 Raffle Tickets
Reading 120 minutes a week is reading just 20 minutes every day for 6 days, leaving you time to work on your Bedtime Math–but I’m sure that you can read for much more than that! Please hand in your reading logs when you return in September–don’t forget to put your name on them!–and we’ll do the drawing at Open House in September. Have a great summer!
