What's the 411- News You Can Use!


Summer Reading!

Dear Parents,


I have a few ideas for you to encourage your students to read the books that have been provided by CPS:

  1. Reading Day outside! Select one book to read outside in the sun.


  1. Mail responses. Have your child address a stamped envelope to 4316 S. Princeton Ave Chicago, IL 60609. Students can write a response to one  or more of their favorite books and send it to their fourth grade teacher.


  1. Create Summer Book Buddies. Have your child partner up with one of their classmates. Allow time for them to plan which book to read first and how they will discuss the book after they complete it. You could have them begin reading the book before the summer begins!  


I hope this helps get your summer reading off to a great start.
