Read Write Think is an organization whose mission is “to provide educators, parents, and afterschool professionals with access to the highest quality practices in reading and language arts instruction by offering the very best in free materials.” They offer great resources for librarians to use, either in conjunction with summer reading or any other time of year, to help students develop their literacy skills outside of school hours.
Read Write Think has many after school resources, which can be viewed by grade level, resource type, learning objective, or theme. There are separate categories for Games & Tools and Activities & Projects. There are tips to help you implement these resources, and printouts for when you need a quick and easy programming supplement.
