Crothersville builds in time for students to read at school each day, but research shows that this may not be enough. Students who read at home in addition to reading at school tend to have higher test scores. Here are some ways to incorporate reading at home this summer!

*Read the cereal box each morning

*Find a reading website or app that your child enjoys

*Look up information about a favorite subject on the computer

*Take regular trips to the library and join the summer reading program

*Start a book club with friends

*Model reading by reading in front of and to your children each day

Summer is a great time to enrich and enhance student learning in a fun way. Parents can plan small, inexpensive or free outings in and around community that will allow students to expand their knowledge and pique curiosity. Parks and nature preserves serve as excellent outdoor classrooms where children can learn and explore. Children need to read daily, so picking out books at the library is a fun way to read for pleasure and keep up on reading skills. Going out with your child is not possible each and every day, playing at home and outside is a great way to help children learn and grow.
