Summer Reading


2016 Summer Reading for ALL

The theme for this year's Summer Reading is Sports with the slogans:

On your Mark, Get Set… Read! (Children & Early Literacy)

Get in the Game—Read (Teen)

Exercise your Mind. READ! (Adult)

Research tells us that when students don’t read for two months their skills regress.  Reading is a skill which requires practice, just like baseball or math facts.  Summer reading helps students of all ages keep their skills sharp so they are ready when school begins again in the fall. Reading throughout the summer not only enhances basic reading skills of young students, it creates unique opportunities for learning, exploring, and growing.  The Woonsocket Education Department Summer Reading Program is designed to promote reading and learning as enjoyable activities.  The following is a suggested guide to authors, resources and activities to share their reading experiences.  Please choose any title that may interest you from any other sources.  Magazines, graphic novels, audio books and eBooks also provide valuable educational experiences. 

We strongly encourage parents to read aloud, including to those children who are already independent readers.  In addition to being a wonderful family activity, children increase their listening vocabulary which improves their comprehension.  It also allows them to develop interests beyond their reading levels.
