Whether it’s reading, writing, speaking, listening, or decipering, each day provides opportunities for us to deepen our literacy skills. These calendars can be used by families during the summer to keep those literacy skills sharp and to be ready to learn, grow, and share--even when school is not in session. Suitable for any age, we encourage you to use these calendars and mark off the activities you do. Parents, grandparents, and caregivers can join in the fun, too! Each student who completes and returns these to school can redeem them in their school media center for a small treat. We hope everyone will participate. HAPPY READING!
