Independent reading has many benefits:
● Improves critical thinking skills
● Improves vocabulary
● Improves comprehension
● Improves writing skills
During the school year, Mansfield ISD asks students to read independently books of their
choice. With this in mind, and in an effort to promote a passion for reading, MISD
recommends that students continue to read over the summer months. Athletes, musicians,
and dancers know that if they did not practice their skills for several months, their skills
might diminish. The same applies to reading. Research shows that if you do not read for
several months, you lose some of your skill.
There are a variety of ways to access
books during the summer:
● Mansfield ISD students have access
to digital books available through their
campus. See your campus librarian for login information.
● Mansfield Public Library

year, students are also encouraged to seek help from their teachers and librarians in making
Thank you for supporting reading and creating lifelong learners in our students.
