Parents, did you know reading aloud to your kids - even teens - helps build comprehension skills?! Even reading books above their reading level helps to build knowledge and expand their experience with text so when they read alone they will do better. Try it - you both will like it!

Another way to prevent summer slide, Huskies . . . read something EVERY day! Things like the newspaper, comics, magazines, schedules and recipes count just as much as a book. Reading every day keeps your brain busy and learning! Reading can be fun and can fit into anyone's busy schedule.

06/08/2020

Hey, Winterset Huskies! Prevent summer reading slide by continuing to stay engaged in books this summer. Research shows reading just six books during the summer may help a reader from regressing. Choose a book that isn't too hard or too easy. Make reading a habit every day! ๐Ÿ“š
