Summer Reading Tip: Read with emotion. Reading with emotion draws a child into the story in a way that is much more memorable and enjoyable. It also helps them to better understand how words can describe something sad, happy, or exciting.

Summer Math Tip: Encourage creative problem-solving. Problem-solving is the basis of good mathematical thinking, and the problems don’t have to involve numbers. “How many different ways are there to walk to school?” “What’s another way to arrange the furniture in this room?”

Mrs. Santos's 3rd and 4th grade reading classes celebrated the end of testing by enjoying a book tasting party! Their classroom was transformed into a restaurant with silver platters of books, fancy glasses, and candles lighting each table. Students were invited to select books from different genres and read each selection for 5 minutes before moving on to another choice. This gave students an opportunity to "taste" each book to see if it's a book they would like to add to their "must read" list. While reading, students were served various appetizers and lemonade by Chef Santos (Mrs. Santos).
