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.
