Why Summer Reading  Is Important

Reading is the most important skill there is. Research shows that reading is crucial to a child’s brain development and intellectual stimulation. And that’s just the beginning:

 

Reading is a gateway skill. It opens the door to all other learning.

Reading is the processing of information. It requires the student to develop a capacity for conceptual thinking — an ability to think about the nature and significance of things.

Reading builds language skills. By becoming more familiar with language through reading, students build a rich vocabulary and an ability to express themselves clearly and creatively.

Reading builds better thinking strategies. Analyzing words, sentences, themes and meaning; concentrating, conceptualizing and visualizing — all these elements of reading are strategies to expand a student’s ability to think.

Reading is active and disciplined. Students learn to choose what they read and when they read, and they learn to discipline themselves to concentrate on the written word.

The best thing you can do is to read for 20 minutes each day!


Enjoy a good book!
