Why should we do this? • State Standards don’t say that you have to: “…Children’s services that include the following…an annual summer reading program for a minimum of six (6) weeks at each fixed location.” No mention of age groups but the understanding is school age.
Why should we do this? • But, having an Early Literacy program can add to the quality of the lives of your patrons. – It’s never too early to start planning for reading success. – Children who have been read to from an early age have a larger vocabulary. – They also have better language skills. – They are more interested in books. – They are more interested in learning to read. CSLP 2014 Summer Reading Manual
Why else? • Value added service to your patrons. • You get more participators leading to more stats and more checkouts. • Including the whole family means no one is left out and the library becomes a family destination for everyone. • It’s never too early to get a child to love their library. • Helps teach parents the importance of Early Literacy. If we aren’t doing it, why should they? CSLP 2014 Summer Reading Manual
How do it? • You can do a traditional log where parents track books read, but don’t forget what we’ve learned from Every Child Ready to Read? • What are those five practices?
Focus on ECRR • Consider developing a log that focuses on the five practices. – Talking – Singing – Reading – Writing – Playing

Why do we do this? • State Standards say that you have to: “Children’s services that include the following…an annual summer reading program for a minimum of six (6) weeks at each fixed location.”
Why do we do this? • To combat Summer Slide: According to Reading is Fundamental experts have found that “children who read during the summer gain reading skills, while those who do not often slide backwards.”
Why do we do this? • To combat Summer Slide: Reading just four books over the summer can prevent summer slide…where students lose educational ground because they may not be as stimulated as they are during the school year.
Why do we do this? • One of the best ways to market your library. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgxdUr D6nVg
