Greeting Emmanuel Students and Parents,
In order to ensure a successful start to the next school year, please encourage your child to read throughout the summer. Research is clear, students who don’t read over the summer can regress or lose skills equivalent to a little over two months of learning. In order to retain all that you’ve acquired academically and to increase comprehension and expand vocabulary, students should read at least 20 minutes daily over the summer. For this reason, all Emmanuel students are assigned Summer Reading Assignments.
Attached you will find your required Summer Reading Assignment. Summer reading and their corresponding Story Maps/Worksheets are to be completed and returned on the first day of school, Wednesday, August 21, 2019. Teachers will review each submission and assign points and/or rewards based on the completed works. This assignment will count as your/your student’s first Reading/Language Arts grade.
Reading can be fun! You’re encouraged to select a book that is interesting to you/your student. Most books are available, free of charge, at your local library in hard copy, downloadable as well as audio books.
HAPPY READING FAMILY! BE BLESSED!
