Summer Reading Approach for Kindergarten Students

We encourage you to make reading a vital and joyful part of your daily routine with your children this summer.

During the summer months, we encourage students to engage in reading every day. Children should spend time with books—being read to, reading aloud, reading to themselves, or a combination of the three—for at least 15 to 30 minutes daily.  

If some of the books on our list are already familiar to your child, choose others by the same author or, feel free to re-read them! Re-reading familiar books has many important outcomes, including learning language, building knowledge of story structure, improving vocabulary, developing sequencing and memory skills, and heightening comprehension.

Don’t forget songs, poems, rhyming games, and nursery rhymes. These spark your child’s awareness of language and sounds and can be enjoyed time and again.  

Nursery School to Kindergarten Transition

In August, you will receive a mailing with the school calendar and your child’s class list. You and your Kindergartner will then receive an invitation to our Kindergarten and New Student Open House scheduled for the afternoon of Thursday, September 1. 

During the first week of school, when Kindergarten children attend half-days only, you will have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with your child’s teachers to tell them about your child.
