Announcing Our 2017 Summer Reading Program!
Summer reading skill losses are cumulative, creating a wider gap each year. Research suggests that children who read as few as six books over the summer maintain the level of reading skills they achieved during the preceding school year. Reading more books leads to even greater success! Las Virgenes Reads 2017, a summer reading campaign, is for all students from preschool through high school. The program’s main goal is to create confident, capable readers. There are no reading logs, no quizzes, no tests, and no worksheets. All students do, is "Just Read!"
Barbara Andrews, Literacy Specialist, and Tina Johnson, District Library Media Specialist, have put together suggested titles of newer books that will keep students engaged with reading over the summer. These are available on the list below, organized by age and reading level. If you're planning to buy these books online, please use THE Foundation's Amazon Smile account so a percentage of sales can be shared with our LVUSD Library Media Centers.
When you're picking out books or reading, capture the moments and share them with us on social media! Join our summer social media challenge!
