1st-6th Grades: Summer Reading List
Though the school year is ending and summer is just beginning, we hope that you will continue to make reading part of your child’s summer experience. This is a perfect time for your child to read new books and try out new genres in a relaxed setting. Summer reading is also an excellent way to keep your child connected to learning during the vacation while also supporting our objectives of encouraging each child to become a life-long reader and learner.
We are pleased to send you our annual summer reading list
Our summer list is divided into grade ranges in order to help you select books that are most appropriate to your child’s reading level and interests. Where possible, there are reading levels or age ranges provided. In addition, there are selections devoted to books with math content, poetry, and books with Jewish content. Finally, there is a section of recently published books and books new to our list.
We encourage you to continue to read together with your child even as s/he enters the upper grades and middle school. We hope that this information is helpful and wish you a summer filled with many hours of enjoyable reading. In addition to our reading list, there are summer reading assignments for students who will be entering grades 2-7 in September, 2019.
The reading list will be available on our school website: Forms & Resources page or by clicking here.
