Reading is a critical skill– one that goes the farthest in ensuring future academic success. The more we can do to help promote reading, especially at an early age, the better our children will do in school.
The books selected for Trumbull's Summer Reading Program are chosen to make reading an enjoyable part of your child's life. Reading research has shown that reading just a few minutes a day significantly increases a child's reading ability.
Your support is essential. You can make this program a success by the positive attitude you take towards reading and by the encouragement you show your children as they participate.
To develop this list we have sought the support of national experts, Trumbull teachers, parents, and, yes, our students. The curriculum department recommends that you review these lists and make your own decision based on the suitability of the books for your individual child.
While the books on the list are recommended, you may supplement the selections with books you and your child enjoy. Of course, it is in every child's best interest to read regularly.
The child should record the titles he/she has read on the journal connected with theGovernor's Summer Reading Challenge and return the journal to your child's reading teacher during the first week of school. As a follow-up to summer reading, all reading teachers will conduct a book share day in September at which time students will present an interesting character and/or memorable scene from one of the books they read during the summer.
Mr. Herbst, our First Selectman, is supporting our summer reading by offering to meet with
students entering Grades 4, 5, and 6 in the 2012-2013 school year. Students must read at least
four books to be eligible to join the discussion. They will meet by grade level to discuss one
book of their choice with Selectman Herbst. Students will have a picture taken with him, receive
ice cream, and a tee shirt. We thank First Selectman Herbst for joining us in encouraging our
students to read over the summer.
Enjoy a wonderful summer of reading!
