Happy first official week of summer 2017. Every Tuesday on the blog this summer I’m going to work to share important information about our building and school community, and also share information to support student summer learning.
Every Child a Super Reader by Pam Allyn and Ernest Morrell is a core resource I’m going to use to help share our philosophy on reading. This book is for educators, parents, librarians, anyone who is invested in helping support children in their community. We know reading achievement is linked with success in so many other areas, its almost like once a child develops a strong reading foundation they have a key that can take them anywhere. By providing your child with text to read and the opportunity/expectation daily to read you are doing the most important thing you could do to help your child be successful in school. It seems crazy but research study after research study has shown it is independent reading and access to books that correlates with huge gains in student achievement. As a parent myself I know how busy days can be and how many other things parents have to do, and how hard it can be to encourage a child to read who has not found a love for reading yet, but don’t give up! And if there is anything I or any Pinewood staff member can do to help and support you please let us know. We want every Pinewood student to feel like they are a Super Reader.

Ava as a Reader
When I have free time might read or play a game. But when I read lay on the couch or bed and get my dog. And I go a page backwards and reread the last paragraph and then keep reading . Have fun reading during the summer!
