¡Felices Vacaciones Y Feliz Lectura!

Lista de Lectura Para el Verano del 2014 de la Escuela Primaria Minor
Un Mensaje Para las Familias Patriotas de Minor
Fomentar el amor por la lectura en nuestros niños, es uno de los más grandes
regalos que podemos darles.
Establecer este hábito es una responsabilidad
compartida entre el hogar y la escuela. Queremos que los estudiantes lleguen a
ser lectores de por vida. La clave es disfrutar. Un niño que ve la lectura como una
actividad agradable y relajante tiende a disfrutarla más. Leer muchos libros de
esta lista, le dará al estudiante una extensa gama de experiencias con muchos
títulos maravillosos.
Aunque hemos proporcionado títulos específicos, los
estudiantes pueden leer cualquier libro de los autores de la lista. Ellos también
pueden leer cualquier libro que los especialistas de la biblioteca de la escuela, de
la biblioteca pública o los que algún maestro les recomienden. Los libros están
agrupados por grados de Kínder a 1ro., De 2do. a 3ro. Y de 4to. a 5to. grado.
Los estudiantes pueden leer libros de la lista del grado escolar al que ingresarán
el próximo año escolar. Juntos podemos hacer de la lectura una parte
emocionante e integral en la vida de nuestros pequeños jóvenes. Recientes
estudios demuestran que los niños que lean por lo menos 4 libros durante las
vacaciones del verano, mantienen o aún mejor, mejoran sus destrezas de lectura.
Esperamos que disfruten la oportunidad de leer junto a sus niños durante los
siguientes meses.
¡Felices Vacaciones Y Feliz Lectura!
Minor Elementary Summer Reading List 2014
A Message to Minor Patriot Families
Fostering a love of reading in our children is one of the greatest gifts
we can give them. Establishing this habit is a shared responsibility between
the home and the school. We want students to become lifetime readers. The
key is enjoyment. A child who sees reading as a pleasant and relaxing
activity is likely to enjoy it. Reading widely from this list will give students
a range of experiences with many wonderful titles. While specific titles are
provided, students may read any book by the authors listed. Students may
also read any book suggested by a school media specialist, public librarian
or teacher. The books are clustered by grades K-1, 2-3 and 4-5. Students can
read books that are listed by the grade he/she is entering in the fall of the
upcoming school year. Together we can make reading an exciting and
integral part of our young people’s lives. The latest research shows
children who read at least 4 books over the summer maintain or even
increase their skills. We hope you enjoy the chance to read together over
the next few months.
Happy summer and happy reading!
