Summer Reading: Oceans of Possibilities
The theme this year for the Collaborative Summer Library Program is Oceans of Possibilities, and there’s so much to explore with titles from The Creative Company! Summer Reading is an important piece to a student’s education. Just because kids are out of school for the summer months, that doesn’t mean they should stop reading. By the time students return to school in the fall, those who didn’t read over the summer may have lost up to two months of learning. Reading just 4-6 books during the summer months results in the students’ potential to prevent a decline in reading achievement scores.
Let’s dive into some ocean-themed titles to help prevent the summer slide!
