Students need to read three books this summer including a whole grade read. The whole grade reads are as follows:
Incoming fourth graders will read Because of the Rabbit by Cynthia Lord.
Our rising fifth graders will read Clean Getaway by Nic Stone.
Rising sixth graders will read When Stars Are Scattered by Victoria Jamieson.
In addition to the whole grade read, students should read at least two more books of their choice. Below you will find a list of suggested books to read that have been compiled with something for everyone. Giving your child choice in selecting a book that interests them most is extremely important. So if there is something they want to read and it's not on the list, then let them read it. Let them find a book they can get lost in!
If you have a child who is still trying to find their love of reading, try a graphic novel, or have your child follow along to the story while listening to it on an audio book. You can also read together by taking turns reading each page or chapter, and TALK. Talk about the books you are reading! When we share our ideas about a book, we grow our ideas and better understand the books we are reading, and the world around us.
