Summer Reading List
Dear K-5 Families,
One of our literacy goals this past year has been to foster a true love of reading. We therefore implemented a daily DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) time into our K-5 classes. After lunch, the students and teachers in these classes relaxed and enjoyed some free reading time. Watching our kids curl up in a comfy spot, or enjoying a book with a friend - what joy it has brought to our building each day!
This goal continues as we enter into the summer months. We want the kids to read. And read. And read some more. It should be text of their choosing and their ability as they develop a love of reading. One strategy to figure out readability is the 5 finger test (see below).
Attached you will find a list of suggestions and ideas. However, scope out your bookcases, check out your local library, and just keep reading!
