May 2016 Dear Parent/Guardian: With the end of the school year quickly upon us, we know that you are making plans for your child’s summer vacation activities. Research indicates that one of the best ways to become a better reader is to READ! Yes, practice is the key to success! Attached you will find the Norristown Area School District Summer Reading List for students. Please feel free, however, to choose any other books your child would like to read with your child. With each book read he/she takes one step closer to becoming a reader. We have included a Summer Reader’s Log for your child to record all the books they have read. 1. Your child reads a book that interests him/her. 2. Your child writes the title and author of the book, on the log. 3. Your child talks with a listener about what happens in the book. The goal for all students is to read as many minutes per week as possible. Have your child bring his/her Reader’s Log and calendar page to school in September 2016. Any child who has completed the reading requirements will be invited to a special fall Reading Celebration. The above information can also be found on the Norristown Area School District website. (www.nasd.k12.pa.us) We thank you in advance for your cooperation and hope you have a wonderful summer! Norristown Area School District

A Day's Work

Eve Bunting

Ricky feels lonely and is picked on by bullies. But, he finds courage he didn't know he had when Dr. Stinky tries to force his new creation, a giant robot, to destroy the city. Ricky and the Robot become friends and help each other out. More than 100 humorously illustrated poems about Baloney Belly Billy and other strange beings. Shocked that her parents are cooking Chinese food to sell in the family store on this all-American holiday, a feisty ChineseAmerican girl tries to tell her mother and father how things really are. A young girl uses various arguments to convince her parents to let her have her ears pierced. An informational book about the relationship between an orangutan (Suryia) and a dog (Roscoe). Suryia and Roscoe form a close friendship full of play and care. Beautiful photographs capture young readers’ attention immediately. Ever since it was published in 1978, the picture-book presentation of Robert Frost's poem "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" has been an enduring favorite. While everyone in his building is having colorful dreams, Roberto watches as the paper mouse he made in school saves a furry friend in the street. Informative and intriguing, this science book teaches children to think about the complex and interdependent web of life on Earth. Every link in a food chain is important because each living thing depends on others for survival. When Grandmama was a little girl, she could hit a ball a mile! But back in the 1940s, girls were not supposed to play baseball with the boys. Now, she's ready to tell her granddaughter about how she finally got to use her talent. Through the entertaining story of Gooney Bird Green, Lois Lowry helps children write stories. Riding on a bus with her grandma, a little girl imagines they are carried up into the sky to see the sights of New York City. As she walks through her neighborhood, a little girl describes a delicious frozen fruit treat from Mexico. When a terrible drought struck William's tiny village in Malawi, his family lost all of the season's crops, leaving them with nothing to eat and nothing to sell. William began to explore science books in his village library, looking for a solution. There, he came up with the idea that would change his family's life forever: he could build a windmill. Made out of scrap metal and old bicycle parts, William's windmill brought electricity to his home and helped his family pump the water they needed to farm the land. When Francisco's grandfather arrives from Mexico speaking no English and in search of a job, Francisco becomes his translator. In his desire to help Abuelo find work quickly, Francisco lies about what his grandfather knows how to do, creating trouble for both of them. In the end, Francisco learns an important lesson in this poignant story about immigrant families and day laborers.

Reading Activities to do with your child:   

Ask your child to tell you the story elements: who the characters are, where the story takes place, what the problem is and how it was solved. Ask them to tell what the story was mostly about (the main idea). Have your child explain why they did or did not like the book and give reasons why.

The SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT ACTIVITY for building knowledge required for eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children by parents or other family members. Read with and to your child daily!! Some effective ways you can help your child improve his/her reading skills include:    

 

Read yourself! Your actions really do speak louder than your words and when you model reading, your children will want to follow your example. Make sure your children read every day! Reading - like shooting baskets and playing the piano - is a skill. Like other skills, it gets better with practice. Children who read more become better readers Schedule regular trips to the library. Make sure everyone in your family has a library card. While you are there, check out a book yourself! Read aloud to your children. Research shows that this is the one most important thing parents can do to help their children become better readers. Set aside some time each day for reading aloud. Even 10 minutes a day can have a big impact. Bedtime is a natural reading aloud time. Other busy families read aloud at breakfast or just after dinner. Give books as gifts. Make reading a privilege. Say, "You can stay up 15 minutes later tonight if you read in bed." Or you might say, "Because you helped with the dishes, I have time to read you an extra story.

Mire los poemas de los siguientes autores: Jack Prelutsky Shel Silverstein Langston Hughes Kenn Nesbitt Actividades de lectura que puede hacer con su hijo/a: Pida a su hijo/a que le cuente sobre los personajes del libro, en qué lugar se desarrolló la historia, cuál era el problema y cómo se resolvió. La ACTIVIDAD MÁS IMPORTANTE para construir el conocimiento necesario para obtener éxito en la lectura es leer en voz alta a los niños/as. Los padres u otros miembros de la familia deben de hacerlo. ¡Lean con/y a su hijo/a todos los días! Algunas maneras efectivas con las que usted puede ayudar su hijo/a mejorar sus habilidades de lectura incluyen: 1. 2. 3. 4.

5. 6.

¡Lea Usted! Sus acciones hablan más que sus palabras y cuando usted modela la lectura a su hijo/a el/ella querrá seguir su ejemplo. ¡Asegúrese que su hijo/a lea todos los días! La lectura – como jugar básquetbol o tocar el piano – es una habilidad. Como otras habilidades, la lectura mejora con la práctica. Los niños/as que leen más se hacen mejores lectores. Hagan paseos regulares a la biblioteca. Haga que todos en la familia obtengan una tarjeta de la biblioteca. ¡Mientras este ahí, aproveche y consiga un libro para usted mismo! Lea en voz alta a sus hijos/as. Tenemos información que indica que esto es lo más importante que un padre puede hacer para ayudar a su hijo/a a convertirse en un mejor lector. Tómese un momento cada día para leer en voz alta. Leer 10 minutos cada día ayuda mucho con la lectura. Cuando su hijo/a se va a dormir también es un buen momento para leer en voz alta. Otras familias muy ocupadas, leen en voz alta en la mañana durante el desayuno o después de la cena. Dé libros como regalos. Haga que la lectura sea un privilegio. Diga, “Te puedes quedar hasta 15 minutos más tarde esta noche, sí lees en la cama.” O podría decir, “Porque me ayudaste con los platos, tengo tiempo de leer otra historia más.”
