|Gov. Fallin &
State Supt. Barresi
Kickoff SDE Summer Reading Program
|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WHO: Governor Mary Fallin and State Superintendent Janet Barresi, students, teachers and school librarians from Putnam City's James L. Dennis Elementary School.
WHAT: Kickoff for the State Department of Education's 2013 Summer Reading Program - Read 5 for Summer. Gov. Fallin and Supt. Barresi will read to students and give students, their parents and teachers information about the State Department of Education's Summer Reading Program.
WHERE: Patience S. Latting Northwest Library, 5600 NW 122nd St., Oklahoma City.
WHEN: 10 a.m., Friday, May 3, 2013.
WHY: Research shows that if children read five books at their Lexile level during the summer it helps get them off to a productive and enjoyable school year of learning. More importantly, it helps develop lifelong readers who understand the importance of balancing reading to learn and reading for enjoyment. A Lexile shows either an individual's reading ability or the difficulty of text in a book. School and public librarians and elementary teachers throughout the state are ready to assist parents in finding their child's Lexile score. In addition, parents can visit the State Department of Education's website to find out more about Lexile measures and to find appropriate books to read.
