I encourage you to participate in the Council Bluffs Public Library summer reading program: Build a Better World. Stop by the youth desk and sign up any time.
Epic! is a site that offers subscriptions for online reading. Normally $4.99 per month - it is just $1 for the summer. www.getepic.com
Summer adventures also offer a great opportunity for writing. Take time to have your child write stories about all of their summer fun. Keep the stories in the folder and bring them to school in August. First grade teachers are sure to love reading and sharing these stories in the fall.
iRead and iReady may also be accessed over the summer for reading and math practice.
