Welcome to Ben Franklin Elementary School!

 

Summer Reading
Summer is a crucial time for helping beginning and struggling readers retain what they have learned and make strides in their reading ability. Researchers have found that summer is the number one cause of achievement deficits between students. Struggling readers must work to improve their reading skills over the summer; failing to do so puts them further behind.
Here is a leveled book series list, programs and incentives that you and your family can enjoy over the summer and a summer reading BINGO chart.

Happy Reading!
