Though school’s out for summer, we know all too well how easy it can be to lose critical information learned during the year. LCA’s summer requirements enable students to stay “tuned up” in their grade appropriate levels of reading and math so that the on-ramp to learning in August is as smooth as possible.
Did you know that children who read over the summer continue to advance in the skills they acquired and developed during the school year? When children read “good fit” books for twenty minutes a day, they will gain 1,800,000 words by 6th grade. We want not only for our students to love reading but also to have a strong foundation in the fundamentals of reading.
WHAT DOES MY CHILD NEED TO TURN IN?
Every student will turn in one reading (record of hours or Bingo card) and one math Bingo card to his/her teacher during the first week of school
READING: For reading, students may choose to either read 15 hours over the 10 weeks of summer, or complete two Bingos on the Bingo card with various reading activities.
MATH: For math, students will complete two Bingos on the Math Bingo card.
We hope you have a wonderful summer and that you will return in August refreshed and ready for another fantastic year.
