Summer Practice

Enjoy your summer, but don't forget to help your students stay on track.
Read often, both individually and as a family. Discuss what you have read.
Our local library, The East Parker County Library, has a reading program going on from June 3- August 15.
Sign up for on-line programs such as BookIt! (see information below).
Half/Price Books Feed Your Brain Summer Reading Program
Barnes and Noble Summer "Imagination's Destination"
Help your student master their math facts. First and second graders need to be fluent in adding and subtracting. Third grade needs to have multiplication facts mastered. On our Vandagriff Students page are links to a variety of math web-sites. It is near the bottom.
Here are three addition sites for math practice.

Beginning June 1st, the Spark Your Greatness Summer Reading Challenge will feature a multitude of reading activities, an interactive Instagram Scavenger Hunt and exciting games to encourage more reading for the next three months. There's even a chance for kids to win awesome prizes just for reading five books throughout the challenge.
