Many parents have asked for summer book suggestions to keep their children engaged in reading over the summer. Penguin© Young Readers has put together a wonderful list of suggested books at all grade levels for summer reading. Many of these books are my own personal favorites and may be yours too! Their website for young readers is also filled with titles listed by category and reading levels for easy reference. Encourage your child to try new genres and authors, and to recommend the books they love to their siblings and friends.
Don’t forget to have your child log his/her reading minutes at the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge™ site using the screen name and password assigned by their teacher. Together we can help set a Posnack reading record!
Be sure to sign up for summer updates to track Posnack students’ progress towards reading ONE MILLION MINUTES!

Thank you to Jen S., Jen K., Amanda, Sarah, Taly, and Leidy who participated in last Thursday’s Singapore Math workshop. We discussed effective instructional methods, different learning strategies, and discovered that we WERE all smarter than a 5th Grader! Click on the Singapore Math title above for a direct link to Dr. Yeap Banhar‘s blog where you can view slides from his presentations around the world. I was fortunate to have recently attended his M4thodology Institute at the Bolles School in Jacksonville. I look forward to passing along much of the valuable information I brought back from this institute in future workshops over the next several weeks.
