Summer Reading is Fun!

Summer Reading is Fun!!

Hello Kings Beach Elementary Families!

Summer is just around the corner and we know how excited you must be. There will be lots of time to enjoy the good weather, play outside, visit with friends and family, and perhaps travel. While we understand that you may be very busy, KBE teachers and staff are asking you to help your child continue to read over the summer. We are providing you with our KBE Summer Reading Challenge “Can you read 1000 minutes?”, as well as some reading resources. Students may turn in their KBE Summer Reading Challenge at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year for a special prize. We challenge students to read 20 minutes, 5x per week, for 10 weeks to read 1000 minutes. While that may seem like a lot, it highly reduces the risk for “summer slide,” which is a decrease in academic abilities when school is not in session. To make it fun, try our reading bingo game, with a loved one, or listening to stories while on the go!

Happy Reading!
