As summer approaches, I’m sure you are thinking of ways to maintain your child’s good reading habits. First and foremost, be sure that they read something..... magazines are often a nice change for some students. Craft and project books or cookbooks sometimes offer a new way to “sneak in” some reading!
We will be having Summer Library here at Ferguson this year, on Tuesdays 1:00-3:00, for six weeks, beginning on June 18th. Many thanks to our PTO funding this!!
Schlow Library is also offering a wonderful program. Our students heard about this program on May 16th, and received book bags and flyers.
You mayaccess more information about this program on the Schlow Library website. http://www.schlowlibrary.org
Be sure that your child has a free library card so that they may participate!
There are many good series that have been popular with our second graders this year:
A to Z Mysteries (Roy)
American Girl (various authors)
Arthur Chapter Books (Krensky)

Have a wonderful summer, and keep those pages turning!!!
