The Importance of Summer Reading

Summer vacation is finally here and it is a great time for families to spend time together. It is also a great time for reading together! Make this summer an opportunity for your child to develop a life-long love of reading and avoid the “summer slide”. According to research studies done by the National Summer Learning Association, children who do not read in the summer lose two to three months of reading development a year, while students who do read gain a month of reading proficiency. The result is a three- to four-month gap every year, which will snowball into a 1 1/2-year gap between the time children complete kindergarten and the time they finish fifth grade. Let’s read throughout the summer so we can continue to become successful readers.

The KCH Library Reading Challenge

The KCH Library challenges all students to read at least 15-20 minutes of reading a day throughout the months of July and August. All each student needs to do is color in the beachballs and the school on their reading record sheets for every time they read for 15-20 minutes. If you want use the suggested summer reading list provided below to help you select a great book to read. Bring back both reading record sheets in September to the library to earn a reading medal. Let's get reading KCH! You can do it!.
