Research shows that increased summer reading reduces summer learning loss. Also, the amount and quality of students’ access to reading materials correlates to the amount of reading they do, which in turn is a determinant of reading achievement. Please visit your local library this summer they offer wonderful programs this year's theme is "Dig into Reading".
Our final Literacy night was a huge success, thirteen guests were in attendance. Everyone enjoyed science stations with the water pressure station leading way as most popular; following a close second was the reaction station. Lyle Huggins, one of our seniors, conducted our read aloud. Thank you everyone who came out and enjoyed the evening!
Fluency is an important part of reading. Fluent readers know that words should flow smoothly when read. Parents can promote early fluency development by reading nursery rhymes to their children. Rereading books is also helpful. Parents can read a book aloud, parent and child can read the same book together, the child can then read the same book back to the parent. Repeated readings help children hear the rhythm of the words. Why not start tonight!
The Tomorrow Center respects and reveres individuality while reaching towards each child’s unique potential. Our purpose is to build a strong academic and social foundation for all students enabling them to communicate and contribute effectively and responsible within their community. We have several new programs implemented: WriteToLearn, Read 180, Scholastics Math, After school Enrichment, family literature nights, and Study Island. Each program is designed to assist and increase student learning.
