HOW CAN I GET READY FOR FIRST GRADE?
Click here, Brookline Summer Reading Lists k-12 prepared by the library department. Students are encouraged to use this as one source for good books, but they may also choose books that follow their own interests. Please encourage your child to read or be read to every day. Research shows that students who read over the summer maintain their reading skills, and in many cases can improve their fluency and understanding. Shared reading with parents is one way to encourage summer reading, and shows your own excitement and interest in books.
**Parents, be sure to record the books your child has read or listened to this summer and bring it back to school signed in the fall for a special acknowledgement.
2. Check out Brookline's Math Calendar
The first grade summer math calendar is designed to help students practice their math skills everyday. There are fun activities, book, and ideas that you can explore with your child. Parents, be sure to record the math activities your child explores during this summer and bring it back to school signed in the fall for a special acknowledgement.
