Stop the Summer Slide!

How do you prevent the “summer slide”? Read, read, read!

When kids are engaged in reading during the summer, they are better prepared for the new school year. Luckily, there are many great opportunities to keep them motivated.

1) Here at Langsford, we have 2 workshops that offer great reading practice:

2) There are also many summer reading programs in the community that offer rewards for reading. Here are a few of our favorites:

Louisville Free Public Library
Register online, read 10 books between June 1st and August 10th, and then stop by your local library to receive a prize package including a Monster Reader pencil pouch, passes to museums, tickets to athletic events, more. You’ll also be entered to win one of several grand prizes.

Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Program
Kids are encouraged to read 8 books during the summer and record them in a Summer Reading Journal, telling what part of the book was their favorite and why. Bring the completed journal to a Barnes and Noble store before August 31st to get a free book!
