From Ms. Miller:
It’s hard to believe summer is here already! Lots of research shows that students who read over the summer maintain their progress and can even improve their reading over the summer. Sadly, students who do not read during the summer are more likely to lose some of their hard earned progress before the start of the next school year.
This summer we want to help your child maintain their reading progress by encouraging them to keep track of the time they spend reading over the summer. This year for Academy students we are using Scholastic’s Summer Reading Challenge as a fun way for students to record their reading time. For Immersion students, we will use our traditional paper log and postcard system. We recommend 20 minutes of reading a day to keep those “reading muscles” working!
Below you will find links to reading logs in French and English as a way to record your minutes as well if more convenient for your family. Students who read 800 minutes throughout the summer will be invited to a Summer Celebration in the fall.
Here are the links for the Academy students. Look for your child’s individual student login information in their take-home folder.
