One World, Many Stories Summer Reading Club at Edison Libraries
Edison Public Libraries summer reading program begins June 6th. Register at one of the libraries. Go to: www.lmxac.org/edisonlib and see other programs available at the library.
Be sure to set aside time each day for reading. A little reading each day will make a BIG difference once school re-opens in September.
Be a reading/writing role model. Let your children see you read and write anywhere—at home, the airport, doctor’s office, at the park, etc.
If they see you reading and writing for enjoyment, they will want to read and write, too.
Great Reading Websites
During the summer, look for numbers everywhere and talk about what they mean. Help your children find examples of numbers in or out of the house; on clocks, the calendar, a cereal box, the TV, a postage stamp, the supermarket, the gas station or even inside their own sneakers. Talk together about what these numbers mean.
Great Math Websites
Enjoy the summer reading and see you in September when we announce our reading winners. Remember everyone who participates receives a cool treat.
