These are books we love, but of course the most important thing is to spend time reading. We know that summer reading is critical to maintain reading levels; kids that don't read consistently over summer lose about one month’s worth of learning before school starts back up. Not only does this waste learning time in the fall, it creates significant gaps between the kids that have read over summer and the kids that haven't, since kids that read at their just-right level all summer long often come back to school ready to move up levels!
Again this summer, students can log their reading! There is a Brent Summer Reading Log at
Each time your child finishes a book, he or she can enter the title and a little information about the book there. That way, we can track the reading that is taking place over the summer! It's quick and easy. The survey is live; you can start tonight! We’re looking forward to hearing about all the great reading that your family does between now and next fall!
