Get Ready for the TIS Summer Reading Challenge

It is important to keep reading fun and to keep reading skills honed during the summer.  Research has shown that reading skills decline over the summer for most elementary students.  A great website about reading with links to ideas, book lists and research is available from Reading Rockets at http://www.readingrockets.org/calendar/summer.

The TIS Library Media Center will sponsor a 2009 Summer Reading Challenge for students in Kindergarten through Fourth grade. Details will be available soon, but reading books in the track languages will be a required element of the challenge for all participants.
