Parents, help to prevent “Summer Slide.”   “Summer slide” is the tendency for students to lose some of the achievement gains they made during the previous school year.  The SCL has a way to help!
The Stevens County Library subscribes to a fun reading program that you and your child can access from home!  BookFlix is an online literacy resource that pairs classic video storybooks with related nonfiction eBooks to build a love of reading and learning.  This engaging resource for children in grades PreK-3 will help early readers develop and practice essential reading skills and introduces students to a world of knowledge and exploration.
Your children can access Scholastic BookFlix anywhere there is an Internet connection–it’s like having access to the library’s collection 24 hours a day, seven days a week!  BookFlix includes:

  • 110 classic video storybooks each paired with a related nonfiction eBook.
  • Spanish language versions of 32 pairs.
  • Read-aloud supports so students can hear each book narrated and also hear definitions of key words and directions for each activity read aloud.
  • Educational games and activities so children can show what they have learned.
  • Safe, age-appropriate web links selected by Scholastic’s editors so kids can extend their learning on a topic.
