Summer Reading

 

 

Summer Reading at

Stamford Central School 2018

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

      Your child will bring home a packet of summer reading information in the next day or so. Please be on the lookout!

      Believe it or not, the sunny days of summer are right around the corner. Summertime is a fun and exciting time for students filled with outdoor activities, sports, carefree days spent with friends, or maybe even an epic family vacation. While these are all wonderful things, it’s important to incorporate a time for reading in your busy summer schedules to avoid what education researchers refer to as the “Summer Slide.”

What Is the Summer Slide?

      Also commonly known as summer learning loss, the summer slide phenomenon occurs when students lose the skills or knowledge acquired during the previous school year due to a prolonged absence from academically enriching activities. Studies have shown that this loss can amount to as much as a month’s worth of material or more, which will need to be retaught during the next school year. 

      Research has shown that summer reading loss is cumulative over time. While some struggling students are falling behind, others are moving ahead with their skills, creating a wider gap each year. By middle school, children who lose reading skills over the summer have accumulated a two-year lag behind their classmates.

Prevent the Summer Slide

      Starting in kindergarten, if a student reads 20 minutes a day at home, they will hear 1.8 million words per year. They will have read for 851 hours by 6th grade and on standardized tests, they will likely score better than 90% of their peers! 

 

What Can You Do to Help?

  • Encourage your child to read at least 15-30 minutes every day or a minimum of 4-5 books during summer break.
  • Motivate them to read anything at their reading level that interests them; whether it’s comics, magazines, graphic novels, recipes, etc.
  • Take your child to the Stamford Village Library (or other public library) to check out books. Let your child participate in summer reading programs and other activities.
  • Keep track of your child’s reading with the attached reading log.
  • Read 5 books (or more J), and record them on the attached summer reading log
  • Bring your completed reading log to Ms. Rutherford by Monday, September 10, to receive a free hand bookmark! (while supplies last) and special recognition.
  •  
  • o   A $10 Amazon gift card will be awarded to the student who reads the most books in the following three categories:

    Ø Students entering grades 1-3 in the fall

    Ø Students entering grades 4-5 in the fall

    Ø Students entering grades 6-7 in the fall

    Have a great summer and happy reading!!

CRAYOLA COLORCYCLE PROGRAM
 
GREAT NEWS!
Stamford Central School is now a part of the Crayola ColorCycle program!
Crayola and schools across North America have banded together to help kids understand the importance of their role in protecting the environment.
Through this initiative, students in schools across the nation can collect dried markers to do their part! We will happily accept any dried markers, they do not have to be Crayola brand. Once we have a box full, we contact Crayola and ship them out so they can turn them into renewable energy! We are very excited to be a part of this program!
Please send all marker donations in with your student at any time. They may be turned in to Sara Haynes- Kindergarten teacher, or the North End Entrance.
Thank you for helping us to preserve our environment, one marker at a time!
