School is never truly finished, even in the summer. As you know, if skills are not reviewed and continued then they are a bit rusty when it is time to begin again in the fall. May I suggest that you continue to have your child read over the summer? Just 15 minutes a day is all that is needed, but reading longer is always preferred. 🙂
So, how do you encourage reading for those who really don’t like to do it? How about a magazine subscription? It’s so fun to get mail and I am sure your child(ren) will love reading whichever one you choose.
National Geographic for Kids Interesting places and people are featured in these issues.
Ranger Rick There are a wide variety of magazines to choose from depending upon age. If your child loves animals. this is worth a further look.
Cricket– If your child likes stories, this is a site to investigate. There are many magazines from which to choose, depending upon age.
Highlights for Children Do you remember reading these? We didn’t have a subscription, but I got to read these whenever I had to go to the doctor’s office. With stories, Spot the Difference, Jokes, and the Hidden Picture pages, this would be one I would buy.
Scholastic Magazine There are interesting stories and nonfiction articles with comprehension questions that you can use for fun or classroom reading.
Whizz Pop Bang This is a science magazine for 6 to 12 year olds that looks like a lot of fun.
Have a great week! ~Lisa~
