(Click the link above to see a Google doc of this year's summer reading list.) Local author Mae Respicio will be speaking to 3rd grade for our annual book fair this November. Please consider reading her book, The House That Lou Built if you are entering 3rd.
At the end of every school year, we read character books to every kindergarten to third grade class. They voted on their favorite and this year's winners are Charlie and Lola! See our blog post to find out how you can participate by taking a picture with them this summer.
Classic Read Aloud Books
Research has shown that children who are read to have a well developed vocabulary. A child can listen to books that they could not read independently. Books allow you to share important topics that will enrich their social and emotional development, such as friendship, prejudice, and empathy. Most importantly, it is a sweet time to connect with your child for some quiet relaxation.
