We all know that Summer reading is critical for students to retain knowledge and skills learned in the previous school year.  That’s why we are sharing 5 Ways to Make Summer Reading Fun!

  • Mix up reading materials-magazines, online books, comic books, recipes, anything that peaks your child’s interest.
  • Make reading a part of a daily routine-any time of day but at least once a day! Read before bed, snuggling up together.  Read outside before going for a walk.  
  • Get “hooked” on a series-once a series “has you” it is hard to put a book down! This year one of the SSYRA’s recommendations is the Gamer Squad!  Click this link to see all of the exciting books for this summer SSYRA Book Information.
  • Be a part of a challenge-the follow are age/grade level appropriate challenges for our Hawks. HCES SUMMER READING BINGO K-2 (002) and  3rd – 5th Grade Reading Challenge. If a student completes one of the summer reading challenges by the 1st week of school, there will be a special reward!
