NO child(ren) will be released to parents at the Theater.

FROM MRS. YENCER, ALT – Slowing Down the Summer “slide” – 1) Read to your child – explore different types of reading like poetry. For our little ones, poetry is a great way to improve phonemic awareness skills as poetry often incorporates rhyme. For our older children, poetry is a means of improving fluency. 2) Read for different purposes. Reading directions for a recipe or directions for assembling a toy are fun ways to incorporating reading. 3) Games with Words. There are tons of ways to have fun learning letters and sight words. Check out my earlier blog post 8 Super Summer Sight Word Activities for a few ideas. 4) If you have an iPad, try downloading a few interactive books. There are also lots of reading games that keep children engaged.
