Listed below are some reading recommendations for the summer:
Recommended Summer Selections:
Magic Tree House Series (Mary Pope Osborne)
Horrible Harry Series (Suzy Kline)
Roald Dahl Series (Roald Dahl) – advanced
A to Z Mysteries (Ron Roy)
The Boxcar Children (Gertrude C. Warner)
Judy Moody Series (Megan McDonald)
Beverly Cleary Series
Flat Stanley Series (Jeff Brown)
The Littles Series (John Peterson)
A Series of Unfortunate Events – advanced
Shel Silverstein Poems – entertaining
Mrs. Piggle Wiggle (Betty MacDonald)
I would also like to recommend subscribing to “Scholastic News” for summer reading. Passages include a wide range of informational and non-fiction text, supporting the Common Core Standards, all presented in an engaging and fun format for children to explore.
Lastly, please have your child spend just 10 minutes a day reviewing basic addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts through 6 (7-9 if possible). This will surely build the confidence and fluency needed and give them a great “jumpstart” in September, as we begin the math curriculum with multiplication. Thank you for your support!
