Our DJE Summer Reading Adventure has begun...
how far along is your child on the game board?!?
Did you know that the average student loses 2 months of academic progress over the summer? Reading over the summer is crucial to student success and learning. Students who READ, WRITE, REPEAT can significantly reduce the decline in reading abilities that tend to slip during summer break.
Please click HERE for more information!!
Print off this summer reading board or draw your own! Each square represents 20 minutes of reading. Color in a game board square each time that you read for 20 minutes to get to 600 minutes for a special reward when you return to school! Please turn in your reading board at the beginning of the school year.
Students will turn their reading board into their reading teacher next year to qualify for a reading celebration!!
Join us in participating in state-wide reading!!
