Below is a list of free resources that will allow you to easily read all summer long. 

● The Ocean County and Monmouth County Library systems have elibraries that can be accessed using your public library card via free apps called Overdrive and Libby. 

● If you do not have a public library card, you can apply for one for free online. 

● is a great site where celebrities read aloud picture books to kids. 

*Remember the best way to keep your reading skills fresh and to make progress as a reader is to read, read, read!                                         


It is also important to practice math skills over the summer. Your 2021 Summer Math Assignment is to sign in to IXL and either click on Recommendations (which is under Learning), or you may go directly to the Diagnostic Arena for a report with IXL skills tailored to your needs. 

The only requirement for this summer math assignment is that you must complete a minimum of 4 hours of work on your personal recommendations.
