Does “summer reading” sound to your students like a chore? You know reading can be just as exciting as any other summer activity, but your students may need a little convincing. These last couple weeks of school, take some time to brainstorm and share all the fun possibilities for summer reading. The web is full of information on this topic. Here are a few of our favorite resources:

This week, young readers from coast to coast will unite in celebrating the longest-running literacy initiative in the nation: Children’s Book Week. For the first time ever, official events are being held in all 50 states! In addition, classrooms, libraries, and booksellers across the nation will commemorate this important literary holiday with readings and activities.

Since November, Read Live, Read Naturally ME, and GATE have been used with a large number of ELL students at Whittier Elementary. The results thus far have been remarkable. RTI educator Lisa Lawrence was eager to share them.

To the inspiring educators who make our students' futures brighter: Thank you for everything you do! We hope you get the opportunity to celebrate this week. You deserve it! 

​Congratulations to Star Student Zai R. from High Point, NC! Zai is an eighth-grade student at Ferndale Middle School. Zai’s teacher, Randall Saenz, had this to say about her:

As the end of the school year approaches, you’ll likely want to report out on the progress your students have made using the Read Naturally strategy. Many educators create end-of-year reports on each student, send home letters to explain progress to parents/guardians, and summarize overall performance for the school principal. Because reporting is a critical part of your Read Naturally program, we’ve worked hard to make this process easy and user-friendly.

Make the most of your Read Naturally program by attending one of our Summer Seminars. These seminars are held throughout the country all summer long and are hosted by the nation's top Read Naturally experts. You will learn crucial information on how to start a new Read Naturally program or maximize the benefits of your existing program, and you'll receive an abundance of training materials and tips.

We hope your students spend the upcoming summer break running around playgrounds, catching fireflies, and having plenty of fun. We also hope they maintain the reading skills they’ve worked so hard to develop this year. Is there a way to combine having fun with continuing to build reading...
