BEGINNING READER SUMMER BOOST
Who: Caregivers and their new budding new readers (recommended ages: 5-6). This is for kids who have just started to read.
Why: Brand new readers need lots of practice reading “just right” books to keep their skills fresh. As a caregiver, it can be challenging to help new readers navigate text.
When: For seven weeks beginning on June 15, 2015, I will be offering a 7 week beginning reader summer boost program.
How: We will be focusing on one phonics book each week. I will provide support materials, fun literacy extension ideas through an email series to help you work with your new or budding reader.
I have helped hundreds of teachers, parents and students navigate the waters of learning to read as a teacher, reading specialist and administrator.
We will be using a great collection of phonics based readers to help us on this journey. The Usborne Phonics Readers Starter Collection includes seven fun titles: Bee Makes Tea, Cow Takes a Bow, Fox on a Box, Hen’s Pens, Big Pig on a Dig, Underpants for Ants, and Goose On the Loose.
Usborne Phonics Readers have been created in consultation with a language expert, taking into account the latest research on the most effective ways of teaching reading. Children who have just learned to read can enjoy the lively stories with very little guidance from an adult, gaining the experience and enthusiasm they need to become fully confident readers.
All you need to do to start is to order your books! Each book costs only $6.14 plus shipping and tax.

I look forward to helping you nurture your new reader with lots of summer reading ideas.
