Summer is just around the corner....encourage your child to READ, READ, READ!
In the summer between 5th and 6th grade I formed a book club for my son and three of his friends. They read a grade level book on their own and then the boys got together and completed some activities. I found the activity workbook at the bookstore (Barnes and Noble). The boys read 3-4 books that summer and we had fun discussing the books. Of course we had a beach day at the end of the summer to celebrate their reading accomplishments.
Any ideas that you can share for how to keep kids interested in reading over the summer? Post comments below.
