Summer Reading 2021

Grade 4 Summer Reading

June 2021

Dear Families of Students Entering Fourth Grade,

Summer vacation is just around the corner, and it’s time to begin thinking about summer reading. As you know, your children have been doing quite a bit of independent reading. This summer the fourth grade teachers encourage each child to read at least five “within reach” books. Children should record the title and author of all the books read on the attached reading log and submit the log to their fourth grade teacher when they return to school.

As you help your child establish a summer reading routine, please keep in mind that the goal is to guide children to become successful, life-long readers. At least thirty minutes a day is ideal. Some families like to set aside time during which the whole family reads. Please continue to read aloud with your child. The faculty has compiled a list of recommended titles for summer reading. In addition, the NCCS website has links to award-winning books and other excellent sites that you might like to explore. Please see the sidebar.

Sincerely,

Shannon Faella, Kristin Quisgard & Maria Sette
