Why is reading to or with
your child so important?
The Summer Slide!
• According to the authors of a November
2002 report from Johns Hopkins Center for
Summer Learning: “A conservative
estimate of lost instructional time is
approximately two months or roughly 22
percent of the school year.”

Public libraries

reading habits over the summer months
• Library summer reading programs began in the 1890s as
a way to encourage school children, particularly those in
urban areas and not needed for farm work, to read
during their summer vacation, use the library, and
develop the habit of reading

Keep Reading this Summer!
• Read aloud together with your child every day.
Make it fun by reading outdoors on the front steps, patio, at the beach or
park. Also, let your children read to you. For younger children, point out the
relationship between words and sounds.
• Set a good example!
Parents must be willing to model behavior for their children. Keep lots of
reading material around the house. Turn off the TV and have each person
read his or her book, including mom and dad.
• Read the same book your child is reading & discuss it.
This is the way to develop habits of the mind and build capacity for thought
and insight
11/13/2015
22
Keep Reading Cont.
• Buy books on tape, especially for a child with a learning
disability.
Listen to them in the car, or turn off the TV and have the family listen to them
together.
• Take your children to the library regularly.
Most libraries sponsor summer reading clubs with easy-to-reach goals for
preschool and school-age children. Check the library calendar for special
summer reading activities and events.
• Make trips a way to encourage reading by reading aloud
traffic signs, billboards, notices.
Show your children how to read a map, and once you are on the road, let
them take turns being the navigator.
• Encourage children to keep a summer scrapbook.

Summer Reading and
Fluency: Tips for Parents
You've got the reading lists. You've got the books. But what
else can you do to make your children better readers this
summer?
• You can help them read more smoothly and accurately.
Schools call this reading fluency. Your kids will call it fun!
• When kids can read fluently, it's easier for them to
understand what they're reading. And they read aloud
easily and with expression. Needless to say, this makes
reading a lot more enjoyable.
11/13/2015
24
Summer Reading & Fluency Cont.
• Less fluent readers read more slowly and word by word.
Their attention is focused on sounding out each word;
so, they pay less attention to understanding what they've
read. Their comprehension and their motivation can
suffer. Of course, beginning readers aren't fluent yet, but
by the end of first grade, kids should be reading books at
their grade level with ease and expression.
• The summer months provide a great opportunity for you
to help your child continue to develop reading fluency.

How Parents can Help Build
Fluency:
• Choose the right books
– Help your child choose books that he can comfortably read. The
"five-finger test" is a useful guideline for beginning readers. As
your child reads, count the number of words he cannot read per
page. In general, there should be five words or fewer that give
him trouble on each page. If a book contains several pages on
which you count more than five words that he can't read,
consider reading that book to your child until he develops more
reading skill.
Listen every day
– Once you've found a collection of books that your child can read, listen
to your child read every day. Be patient – new readers often read slowly!
Offer wait time to allow your child to “noodle” the word when he or she
gets stuck. If your child needs help after that, feel free to provide it.
ALWAYS give lots of praise and encouragement!
11/13/2015
26
How Parents can Help Build
Fluency:
• Reread
– Encourage your child to reread favorite books, and make it fun!
Repeated readings improve children's fluency and
comprehension. They also provide opportunities to practice
reading with expression.
• Read to your kids every day
– Model your own fluent reading as you read and reread books
with your child. Even though your child may be able to read on
her own, continue to find time each day to read books to her that
are just beyond her reading level. She will enjoy listening to
more advanced stories, and she will hear a great example of
fluent reading.

Vacation and Travel!
• Summer reading doesn’t have to stop
while you are on the road!
• Audio books in the car (Tip: have a selection so no
one gets burned out from repetition)
• Undertake pre-trip reading about the destination.
This helps build background knowledge and
excitement
• Encourage your child to keep a journal or create a
scrapbook of his/her vacation.
• Build in time for relaxed reading on vacation
11/13/2015

Motivating reluctant summer
readers
• Really probe and “tune-in” to determine
children’s interests
• Try graphic novels
• Help create the child’s self-image of himself as a
reader
• Model reading behavior – make reading a part of
everyday life
• Surround kids with resources – reading material
and other resources – to keep them inspired
11/13/2015
29
How can I get my child excited
about summer reading before
school ends?
• Plug in to their interests
• Plug in to fun (e.g., humorous books like
Captain Underpants)
11/13/2015

Remember- reading isn’t just
books!
What other media besides books is effective?
Print, text, and words in all forms and fashions
are excellent:
• Games
• Audio books
• Newspapers
• Magazines
• Books
• Labels / Signs / Logos
• Online resources
