The Importance of Summer Reading
Summer reading provides students with an opportunity to explore self-chosen topics while strengthening literacy skills. Whether it is a novel, magazine, or comic, continued practice prevents the “summer slide” and sets the stage for a successful school year. Sharing and discussing books fosters a literate environment, and increases opportunities for authentic reading experiences. The Attleboro Public Schools strives to develop lifelong learners and readers.
