PLE Summer Reading

Illuminating Literacy Through Summer Reading 2020

Dear Students and Families,

We encourage you to join our summer reading program! It is very important to continue reading during the summer months so that you can continue to grow as a reader.

Students may read alone, read with someone, or listen to a story. In addition to reading, students may also choose to write in a journal. The goal is to keep them engaged with books over the summer months.

Below are links to calendars for each month of the summer to record your reading as well as booklists if you need some suggestions.

Please return the completed and signed calendar to your new homeroom teacher during the first 2 weeks of school so you can choose a free book donated by our PTA.

 

Happy Summer Reading!

What books should my child read?

We feel that it is very important to provide students with choice in what they read. Please help your children find “just right” books to match their interests and reading abilities. This usually means that they can read most of the words and understand the ideas.

If they are interested in a book that is too difficult for them, that would be a wonderful book for you to read to them. If you would like book suggestions, you can find booklists in the section below. The book lists are meant to provide you with a place to start when choosing books for your child. The lists include books on a variety of topics, reading levels, and genres by different authors that should be easy to find at the local library or bookstore..
