Central Maine Summer Reading Programs

Are you trying to plan ahead for summer?  I surely am!  The kids will be home and I want to ensure we don’t have the dreaded summer slide.  I plan to spend time each day reading with the kids to try to reinforce that skill.  Keep reading for some suggestions of Central Maine Summer Reading Programs plus a few National Programs as well.  As more updated information becomes available I will update it here.

Education.com Summer Reading Program

This program is designed in cooperation with PBS KIDS.  The program includes 10 weeks of themed ideas for creating your own summer reading camp.  There are no prizes but definitely some great ideas to keep your kids learning throughout the summer.


I’m excited to check a few of these out with my kiddos this summer.  Boo Boo has started reading Step 1 books in Kindergarten and we need to continue to practice the skill.  Buddy will be heading into Kindergarten in the Fall so its a perfect time to start practicing more with him as well.

If you know of any other programs feel free to leave a comment and I will add them to the list!
