Summer Reading: Magazines

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~

One thought on “Summer Reading: Magazines

  1. Hey Ms. Lisa! Thank you for the reading ideas! One has a whole bunch of books she wants to read and the other has a bunch of books she is using as a press… it has been so difficult to get that part of the institutional element out of her from Finneytown….. very frustrating…. Do you want us to drop off the girls reports and work to you and pick them up at a later date? When will it be convenient for you? Thanks for all you do, hope to hear from you soon…. Michael Hamel
