Reading over break resources

Rainier View Readers

Over the break, please keep reading !  We want all our Rainier View students to continue to grow in their reading ability, without losing any of the gains they have made so far this year. All the research shows, it only takes twenty minutes a day of reading! 

All students have had a chance to visit the library and 1-5 graders have checked out books to take home.But there are also many other ways to read.  Online, there are many wonderful sites to explore. With any device (computer, tablet, Kindle fire, IPAD, cell phone, etc) there are lots of choices.  Here are just a few:
