Summer Reading

Aug 1, 2018

In tandem with our summer activity goals is the summer reading list for project based learning. Stay fun and engaged this summer.

 At Clarion we encourage reading all year long. Over the summer reading is best way to support academic growth. It will help prevent the “summer slide” in which a child loses reading levels over the summer and spends the early school months catching up again.

Daily reading in summer can be fun and exciting. With extra time to visit libraries regularly, explore new books, keep a reading journal and engage in project-based learning, your child can grow as a reader and develop new interests.
