Rising 2nd Grade Summer Learning

Reading

For about 30 minutes each day, we hope your child engages in any of the following:

Continue to read on a regular basis. Read physical books if you have them.

Continue to be read to (books with a higher vocabulary and up to their listening level which is higher than their reading level). Audio books are also great for this.

Visit your public library! Virtually or in person
