Summer is a much needed break for teachers, students and parents - but sometimes when the inertia of classwork ceases, so can students’ exposure to educational resources. Here are some ideas to minimize the “summer slide.”
Looking for summer reading for every age? Try these from RedRover’s Recommended Books with Humane Themes book list:
Ages 2+: What’s in a Woof is a fun and colorful book about understanding dogs’ special ways of communicating. This book is perfect for reading to children who are learning word recognition and who would enjoy looking at vibrant pictures of dogs. There is even a coloring book where children can color in pictures of dogs throughout the book!
After school program teacher, Alexis Sandoval, introduced her students to the RedRover Readers program in the START after school program at Golden Empire Elementary School. She then entered her school into the RedRover Readers Impact Contest -- and they won! Soon after, RedRover taught the whole school -- all 22 teachers -- to implement the RedRover Readers program in their classrooms, just in time for the 2015-2016 school year.
RedRover is excited to announce the first RedRover Readers program book in Spanish. We’ve collaborated with The Gryphon Press publishers to create Rufo liberado! This Spanish-language edition of Buddy Unchained by Daisy Bix was translated with the help of Dr. Iris Escudero from The Bilingual Owl.
