Summer Reading

101 Keep kids and teens reading — and loving it Family Features


50 things to do this summer

hen school is out for summer, the last thing many kids want to do is pick up another book. However, reading is one of the most important activities children can do now to help themselves later — both when they go back to school in the fall, and later in life. If children don’t engage in educational activities such as reading and math over the

summer, they can experience summer learning losses. “With the majority of U.S. fourth-grade students reading below the proficient level, the summer months are critical for student learning,” said Meredith Curley, Dean of a major university. “By engaging in fun reading activi­ties during the summer months, parents not only have the opportunity to encourage learning, but to motivate their children to develop a lifelong love of reading.” Curley offers these tips for parents and caregivers to help incorporate reading into everyday activities in ways that will make it fun to keep learning all summer long. “Reading is critical for a child’s success, no matter what age,” said Curley. “By finding ways to make reading part of your children’s everyday activities, you are helping them build a solid foundation not just for the next school year, but for their futures.”


Saving Money on Vacation Make the most of your trip with these cost-saving strategies By Jim Garnett


amily vacations can be great opportunities for making memories. I still remember vivid scenes from childhood vacations traveling in our 1960 Nash Rambler. We often traveled to see relatives, but once in a while headed to a someplace like the Grand Canyon or the Ozarks. Our family was not wealthy by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, I discovered later on in life, that we were actually quite poor. Interestingly enough, not one of those vacation memories I hold dear has anything to do with an activity that cost money. Therefore, even when finances are lean, a little forethought and planning can create a great family vacation filled with one memory after another. Here are a few tips that will help you save money on your next vacation.

Stay in one place. The cost of gasoline can be cut a lot if you travel to one area and stay there. This presupposes that there is something to see and do in that location. Rent multiple nights at a time. Staying in one area also enables you to rent by the week instead of one night at a time. Discounts always await those who stay more than just a night. This also eliminates having to pack up everything and move the family every day.

Choose a non-peak season. If you vacation in the off-season, the crowds will be smaller, the lines will be shorter, the beaches will be emptier, and


Stay at relatives. I am sure that this can be a blessing or a curse, but especially if both families have kids, a few days with kinfolk can be pretty neat. Plus, one of the greatest vacation expenses, lodging is eliminated. Look for destinations where the fun is free. A trip to the Tetons, the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, a State Park, or the beach offers days of exciting things to do at little cost. Check out local guidebooks. Most of these contain discount coupons for local attractions. Eat out only once a day. A place with a built in kitchen can let you choose which meals to eat out. A hotel with a complimentary breakfast can take care of breakfast. A cooler with soft drinks, fruit, chips, and sandwiches will satisfy most families for lunch. This approach can enable your family you to save hundreds of dollars a week or enjoy eating the evening meal at a more expensive restaurant. Bring home free souvenirs. Most expensive gift shop souvenirs will hold no better memories than a vase of sea shells, or a piece of driftwood, or best of all — a family picture on location! All of these tips can save you money or at least allow you to spend your vacation money on your vacation

Among the elements that a plaintiff must prove in order to successfully pursue a negligence claim is “proximate cause.” This term refers to the fact that the defendant is liable for negligence only if his carelessness directly caused the plaintiff harm. In some cases, proving “legal cause,” as it is otherwise known, may not be as cut and dried as a plaintiff may think. If so, the plaintiff’s lawyer must sift through the evidence to find relevant facts that support his or her client’s case. On top of that, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant owed him or her a legal duty of care, that the defendant acted unreasonably, and that the plaintiff suffered loss(es) as a result.

Acorn Crop Spurs Rising Concern of Lyme Disease

Coweta’s Greatest Generation

Limited Edition Hardcover Book

Published by


A little-known relationship between acorns and mice has set the stage for what may be one of the most severe tick seasons in recent years. As more people go outdoors to enjoy the warm weather, they could also be at a greater risk for tick-borne diseases such as Lyme disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Lyme disease is the most commonly reported vector-borne illness in the U.S. Experts across a variety of fields have pinpointed the reason behind the increased risk – acorns. Jim Fredericks, an entomologist with the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), says that acorn abundance from budding oak trees gives rodents a jumpstart on breeding. And rodents, especially mice, happen to be the primary source of food for thirsty blacklegged tick larvae. Thus, we see a problematic circle of life. Since acorns fell at unprecedented rates in 2010, white-footed mice bred more heavily, and ticks feasted well. But a succeeding lull in acorns in 2011 means more ticks are waking up hungry in 2012 with fewer mice. The next easy targets are humans, walking through tall grass and playing outdoors. “Many of these nymphal ticks may potentially have contracted Lyme disease from feeding on infected mice as larvae,” said Fredericks. “These hungry ticks will soon be looking for another blood meal, which puts people at risk as they head outside to enjoy the weather.” Because Lyme disease can sometimes be difficult to diagnose, and not all people react in the same way, it’s important for anyone spending time outdoors to be vigilant about ticks. NPMA suggests the following tick prevention tips: ■

sheds, trees, shrubs and swing sets. Remove weeds, woodpiles and other debris. ■

Use tick repellent when outdoors, and wear longsleeved shirts and pants, preferably light in color so ticks are easier to detect. Use preventative medicine on pets, as prescribed by your vet. Once indoors, inspect clothing and entire body. Check family members and pets, too.

■ ■

Keep grass cut low, including around fences,

If you suspect a tick bite, seek medical attention. If you suspect a tick problem in your yard, consult a pest professional for treatment options.

If a tick is found attached, remove it with a slow, steady pull so as not to break off the mouthparts and leave them in the skin. Then, wash your hands and the bite thoroughly with soap and water. Place the tick in a locking sandwich bag, and write the date on the bag. This way, the tick can be tested if you have a bad reaction. Wrap in a tissue and flush down the toilet to completely dispose of the tick.

out loud. Encouraging your children to read aloud will help develop their reading fluency and build their confidence as readers. For example, ask them to read recipe directions as they help you prepare a treat in the kitchen. If they make a mistake, gently point out overlooked letters or words read incorrectly. n Let them play. Games and activities played on electronic devices provide many opportunities to engage children with words and letters. Spelling games, word games and matching games can help children build reading proficiency and comprehension. Consider devices with learning games when purchasing a toy for a child. Instead of watching a movie in the car, consider audio books and CDs and DVDs with reading games. n Turn them into storytellers. Have your child read a book and then retell the story. If he or she has trouble, help by asking the five Ws: Who, What, Where, When and Why. n Hone their critical thinking skills. Success in reading isn’t just about decoding words, but also about comprehension. Help your children build critical thinking skills by asking them questions, such as what they think about something that happens in a story, if they have experienced something like that before, and other questions to help engage them in the story. Also, when they ask you questions, answer and then ask a follow-up question. n Turn a library visit into an adventure. Make an ordinary trip to the public library an adventure for your child by selecting a topic to research. For instance, set out to learn everything you can about your hometown, animals or space; or set out to answer a specific question. Many libraries also offer weekly classes that parents can attend with their child to encourage the love of reading. Simple activities such as these can increase a child’s understanding of sequencing, link reading to real-world activities, expand their vocabulary and feed their curiosity, all while building their interest in reading. Choosing Books A book that is too easy to read doesn’t help kids grow as readers, but books that are too difficult to read can be frustrating and discouraging. A simple rule of thumb for choosing an appropriate book is called the Five Finger Rule. Let your children pick out books that interest them. Have them read 100 words from the book, asking them to raise one finger for each word they don’t know, or are unsure of. If the child raises more than five fingers, the book is probably too difficult.

Saving Continued from Page 1 priorities. But the last tip may well be the biggest saver!

Pay yourself in advance. The average vacation costs the American family around $1600 and many charge this cost on credit cards. To pay a $1600 vacation off in minimum payments, will take 14 years and 9 months, and will actual cost you a whopping $3399 for your $1600 vacation! How much better to plan ahead for vacation. That $1600 vacation would require an auto deduct of only $135 per month from your paycheck to a vacation account. If you only have 6 months to prepare, $270 needs to be set aside. The point is simple — when vacation is over, you want its memories to remain for years, not its payments! Paying for your vacation in advance will allow you to take two vacations for what the cost of charging one on credit cards would be! To be sure, family vacations can be a great time for making memories. I hope these tips can help you focus even more on having fun because you have your vacation finances under control.

While younger children frequently read for fun, the voluntary reading rate tends to drop dramatically as they move through their teen years. A recent National Endowment of the Arts reading study found that while 54 percent of 9-year-olds read for pleasure, the number drops to 30 percent for 13-year-olds, and only 22 percent for 17-year-olds. Curley recommends that you encourage your teen or tween to read by finding activities that engage their unique interests and allow them to assert their own opinions. Here are some ideas to help tweens and teens rediscover the pleasure of reading: n Have them write. Teens can submit book reviews to sites such as www. This is a great way to combine reading, writing and critical thinking skills. Or, encourage them to write fan fiction, putting their own spin on a favorite book or genre, either as a written story or a video script version of a book. n Let them check out graphic novels. These aren’t the comic books you might have grown up with. There are some highquality titles available that deal with a wide range of subjects that will appeal to girls and boys and can be a great way to engage reluctant readers. n Look for book-to-film novels. If teens have seen the movie, they might be willing to read the book. If you read it too, then you can talk about the differences between the two versions such as what worked, what didn’t, why the filmmakers might have made certain changes, etc. n Find different reading materials. Magazines, newspapers, short stories and online articles can also help build a teen’s reading comprehension and vocabulary skills. If your teen has a particular interest, such as cars or sports, consider get-

ting them a magazine subscription. n Suggest a book club. Check your local library or bookstore to see if they have teen reading clubs. If not, encourage your teen to start one. They will be able to read what their friends are reading and can then have fun talking about it. Choosing Books There are a lot of middle grade and young adult books available. So many, in fact, it can be over-

whelming. Here are a few ways you and your teen can find something they will enjoy reading: n Start at the library. Librarians often showcase new and popular books in displays in the youth reading sections. Let your tween or teen explore the options and read a chapter or two to see what piques their interest. (If they find a series they like, consider buying the rest of the books for them.) There might be suggested teen reading lists on the library website, as well.
