AGI Summer Reading
Illuminating Literacy Through Summer Reading 2022
for students entering AGI
in grades 3, 4, 5, and 6
Dear Students and Families,
Now that summer is almost here, we want to encourage all students to READ, READ, READ! Our AGI Summer Reading Program aims to motivate students to develop good reading habits, explore new genres of literature, enjoy the books that they choose to read, and prevent “Summer Slide.” Research shows us the wonderful benefits of reading 30 minutes daily, therefore, we challenge our AGI students to read as many books as possible over the summer. Happy reading!

Importance of 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 book lists 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..
