  • Stop the Summer Slide!

    Avoid the Summer Slide!

    Many students think of summer as a time to forget about school and all of the academic skills that go along with it for a couple of months.  Unfortunately, many studies have shown that children who don't read books or review their academic skills over the summer often fall behind their peers who do.  Here are some ways to avoid the summer slide!

    1.  Get a library card from the Montville Library and check out a ton of cool books!

    2.  For grades K-5, go to the kickoff for Montville Library's Summer Reading Contest , then join the program to earn awesome prizes and rewards!

    3.  For grades 5 & up, go to the kickoff for Montville Library's Teen Summer Reading Contest , then join the program to earn awesome prizes and rewards!  

    4.  Check out some of the terrific programs offered at Montville Library this summer!

    4.  Sign up for Scholastic's Summer Reading Challenge to earn cool rewards online, and to try to read for a new world record! (See below)

    5.  Visit Read Works and print our some summer reading activities, sorted by grade level and/or Lexile level.

    6.  Visit this awesome collection of websites & apps that I put together especially for the summer!

    6.  Click on the following links to learn more about the Summer Slide and how your child can avoid it!

    Be a Reading Superhero!

    This summer (starting NOW!), I am inviting your child to join the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, a free reading program dedicated to stopping the "summer slide" and inspiring kids to read every day this summer. Now in its tenth year, the theme for this year’s Summer Challenge is “Be a Reading Superhero!” As kids log their reading minutes, they will unlock stories written by bestselling authors. Plus, throughout the summer, kids can earn digital rewards and learn about great new books to read. You’ll also find free articles, activity sheets, and book lists for parents on the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge website.

    Additionally, as kids log the minutes they spend reading, they will read for a new world record for summer reading!

    Please click on the links below for more information about how you can join the Summer Reading Challenge!

    The 1st & 2nd graders have worked on digital storybooks using the Storyjumper website.  First graders worked on their stories as a class, while second graders worked on them in small groups.  Please follow the links & enjoy them!
