*Happy Summer!*

Happy Summer to my *FOREVER* Busha Bunch!  I know you’re on your way to 1st Grade, but don’t forget that you were mine FIRST!  😉 I will always have a very, very special place in my heart for *YOU!*

DID YOU KNOW THAT….it’s common for Kindergarten students to *REGRESS* over the summer! What does that mean?  If you don’t use it, you LOSE it!  All the hard work we did in Kindergarten starts to disappear if you choose not to use that awesome knowledge.

Keep your kiddos reading this summer! It’s hard to play catch up at the beginning of 1st Grade!

Here are some fun ideas for your *SWEET* reader….

  • WO Primary SUMMER Reading Club…If you haven’t found it already, I sent home a summer reading log.  Fill that up with books your child has read and they receive a t-shirt for working hard over the summer! Super Cool!
  • White Oak Public Library/Longview Public Library– great places to get books and to read, read, read!  They have fun programs all summer long to get your child involved.
  • iPad apps to encourage reading/writing
