Mrs. Ashley Hammett and Mrs. Megan Girdler had another great story time at the Greenbrier Library last week! Remember you can find out about all summer library activities at for children through adults!

Summer Reading Tip #6:  Readers make predictions!  A great strategy is to think through what might happen next in the book and take a great guess or prediction.  This helps with staying interested in great books and with reading comprehension!

Summer Reading Tip #7: Don’t read like a robot, but read like a storyteller!  Match your voice to the way the character feels! If the character is sad, make your voice sound sad, and if the character is excited, make your character sound excited!  This simple tip help you understand the true meaning of the book even better.

Stay tuned for more summer reading tips for our Whispers from School to Home Project, and keep reading all summer this summer!  Our goal is to prevent the “summer slide” in reading and maintain the great reading progress our students made last school year! Thank you to our parents and families for your help at home!

This project was made possible in part from the Grade Level Reading Grant from the Arkansas Communities Foundation.
