    Summer Reading Logs

    #readwithme this summer!

     

    Dear Parents,       

    We so appreciate you encouraging your child to read this summer! Your support and assistance is crucial as they develop this skill that they will use every day, in every subject for the rest of their lives. As budding readers, it is important for us to follow their lead in book selection, allowing them to explore a variety of books. More than anything else, we want to create a love of books and literature and avoid making reading seem like a chore.

    Through books, you and your child can visit distant lands, learn new vocabulary, and experience new ideas, all while enjoying time spent together. That is the beauty of a great book! With younger children, read the book with them, asking questions about the illustrations and the story, checking for comprehension, building vocabulary and “collecting experiences.” For older, more independent readers, ask them to tell you about the story. Of course, our children never grow too old for a great read aloud, so don’t shy away from a family read aloud, even for older readers. You’ll be amazed by how much they love it (and you will too)!

     

    Fun Ways to Read!

     

    • Read to a stuffed animal
    • Kids read to mom/dad/grandmom as they drive on trips
    • Facetime with a family member and read a story to them.
    • Record yourself reading and share your story with a family member or friend to listen to.
    • Read to a pet
    • Read in the dark with a flashlight.
    • Read in a tree
    • Listen to an audiobook
    • Have someone take pictures of you reading in interesting places
    • Visit the animal shelter and read to the animals
    • Buddy read with a friend and have fun reading discussions
    • Read a fiction book and a nonfiction on the same topic (example: I Don’t want to be a Frog and Life Cycle of a Frog)

     

    On the reverse side of this letter is your child’s summer reading log. Please encourage and assist your child with their reading. The Kershaw County Library also has a summer reading program for students.  Pre-K through 5th graders only need to read six books to participate in the public library program.  If your child reads at least 10 books and returns the completed and signed attached reading log, he or she will be invited to a reading celebration at the beginning of next year.

    All reading logs are due to the library by September 3rd.  Students who return their logs will be invited to a Jackson School Read-In on September 13th. 

    Thank you for supporting your child’s reading,

    Donna K. Myles, Media Specialist @ JES
