We hope you are enjoying your summer break and are having lots of adventures and positive experiences. We look forward to hearing about them in the fall! We also want to make sure that you are practicing important academic skills over the summer to help you to be ready to learn when you return to school. We have listed suggested books to read as well as math games to play over the summer for practice.
Please read as much as you can, whatever you’d like! For a suggested summer reading list for each grade level, visit http://montgomerycountymd.libguides.com/readinglistsbygrade.
Here is a link to a new service of the Montgomery County Public Libraries that provides personalized recommendations based on your child’s age and interests – the sign up is free! Happy reading! http://montgomerycountymd.beanstack.org/summer_reading?locale=en
Listed here are Everyday Math games taken from your coursework this previous year. Please play these games as much as you’d like- they are good reinforcement of the concepts you have learned. Please only play the games for the grade level you just completed, do not go ahead. We want to ensure that you are doing these activities properly.
