Have you ever heard the phrase ‘summer slide’? It refers to the loss of learning that can take place when skills are not practiced over the summer. We want everyone to keep their learning brains turned on by spending a 10-50 minutes every day practicing math facts and reading. To determine the appropriate minimum number of minutes/day for your child, multiple their grade level by 10. For example, a first grader would spend a minimum of 10 minutes — 5 minutes on math and 5 minutes on reading.
If you would like to track reading minutes over the summer, this COUNTS toward our summer learning prize drawing. Log into this form once a week or once a month to tell me how many minutes you are reading. Summer learning contest ends on August 20.
Another option: our school has a login for all students on MOBYMAX – an excellent online tool for all content areas. If your child has forgotten their password/login, email me. Login is through Clever with student email address and password.
Our goals for students over the summer are below. Students who reach or exceed goals will be entered in a drawing for an Amazon Gift Card (1 per grade). This is for their grade next year.
Reading: Log into this form to record the number of minutes you read. You can record each day or enter the total for each week.

If your child is new to the school and you would like login information, email Mrs. Reagan. email@example.com
Finally, Mrs. Vandenberg, our librarian, would love to have post photos of you reading over the summer. If you have a photo of your reading during vacation, send her the photo at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope your July was fantastic! See you in four weeks!
