North Carolina Schools Emphasize Summer Reading

We’ve written before on the notable Read NC literacy campaign.  That’s why it’s good to see so many North Carolina districts making a concerted effort to keep students reading over the summer months.  Here are more N.C. educators making the case for keeping students reading:

“If we don’t continue reading in the summer we lose so much”, said Vickie Cameron, executive director for curriculum and instruction for Mount Airy City Schools.  “Parents should continue to take their children to the library, read to their children a few minutes each day, having their children read to them a few minutes each day and model reading.  They should let them see their parents reading.”

If you haven’t already taken a look, the “Read NC ” webpage includes free resources to support children’s reading success in the classroom and at home, including a link to the free Lexile Find a Book .
