Beat Summer Slide!
A Message from the Librarian
After a challenging year, thankfully, summer’s finally upon us, which means it’s time for Bryant Library’s annual Summer Reading BINGO. If your student did not receive a form by the end of school, visit bit.ly/BryantSummerReading for a copy. We designed our BINGO to encourage readers to reach broadly–break out of the tried and true–and beat “summer slide.”
Literacy experts note that summer slide of learning, occurs when students are out of the school habit. For a little more information, visit this Scholastic website.
Fortunately, reading, in all its shapes and forms, can help students maintain those sharp noggins! Reading to self, reading with someone else, being read to, or listening to audio books are all ways to stay ahead. Our bit.ly/BryantSummerReading link includes some resources for book suggestions and other mindful activities over the summer.
Enjoy summer and READ!
