VTSD 2014 Summer Reading Program

  4. 4. Walnut Ridge: Kindergarteners going to 1st Grade and 1st Graders going to Second Grade. Using the Developmental Reading Assessment for the levels that the child is reading on, the children in kindergarten and first grade choose on “Book Choice Day” two books on reading level. Then, on another day the child gets to choose three more books that are “reach” or high interest books. All five books are gifts that go home in a cool bag on June 20th – Vernon’s Book Day! Thanks to Mrs. Gebhardt for her support of this program.
  5. 5. Rolling Hills and Cedar Mountain: The Competition Begins! USING THE DEVELOPMENTAL READING ASSESSMENT AS AN INDICATOR OF PRESENT READING LEXILE LEVELS, MRS. QUE AND MRS.

Tales from “The Hollow:” The exiting students from Cedar Mountain and Rolling Hills are going to be greeted by Mrs. Rostami, Mrs. Schiano, Ms. Sabia with the book Wonder by RJ Palacio. This “one book, one grade” moment is a first of its kind for Lounsberry. The children will read the book over the summer and prepare for the first week of school with the summer reading assignment. The assignment will ask them to compare a character in the book to themselves. Upon entering Lounsberry as a new student they will, in their new classes, introduce themselves by discussing who they are most like in the novel.
