Summer Reading

Frostwood Parents,

Amidst your planning for great summer fun of well deserved travel and relaxation, don’t forget summer reading for your children. Summer reading is so very important for a child’s reading development.

You child will be receiving several reading logs and information on several summer activities around our community including a chance to earn free books from Barnes & Noble, public library programs, and Scholastic.  Houston Public Library has free e-books that can be downloaded for two weeks at a time. Read books while on vacation, traveling to and fro, swimming & fishing, at camp or just hanging around.  Children can read to a friend, a brother or sister, a grandparent to make it fun.   You can also get a few kids together and start a summer book club!  The books you have at home and the public library can be a great source to use to catch up on recreational reading for your child before school starts again in August.

The summer reading party at school put on by Courtenay Nichols and Felicia Beaver, Summer Reading Co-Chairs, in September is going to be fun with ice cream and free drawings for books, and more.  The Tiger Reading Logs will be the record we will use for keeping track of summer reading. A page outlining grade level expectations from teachers was included in the Summer Reading Packet. These expectations were also included in report cards with a letter from your teacher.  Please email me if you have any questions.

*Important: You can write the same books on all of the incentive records in order to get the credit for reading the same books. Check my website as I will include links to reading records to copy and websites to find books.  I will also have a blog for your children to read what Mrs. Branon is reading and thinking this summer.
