Summer Reading

The best way to help your child to read fluently is to simply have him/her read frequently.  Summer is a perfect opportunity to read high interest fiction or non-fiction books.  Set a goal of reading 30 minutes a day and talk to your child about what he/she is reading.  Below please find some websites which may help you to plan for a summer of reading enjoyment.
