Summer Reading Backpack Program – LEVEL 5 - Books and Activities for Summer 2018
Summer Reading Program – LEVEL 5 - 4th Grade, 5th Grade, 6th Grade
We have all heard about the ‘summer slide’ in students during summer vacation. When they start back to school in the fall and it seems as if they forgot everything they learned the year before. The term ‘summer slide’ means everything they need to relearn when school starts. It can be frustrating as a teacher and parent because of feeling like students are going backward instead of forward!
We bet you are thinking, “How can I prevent the summer slide?” Well here are a few items we suggest to set-up students for success before they go on summer break.
- This program provides a summer reading log for students to track their progress in the summer months.
- We provide a summer book resource for parents. Parents can choose a reading level that best fits where their children are at the end of the school year.
- We provide a writing journal and activity book for students to complete. The journal includes games, activities, and projects for the students to complete with each book they read.
- Choose a level that contains books that are of high interest to your child to get them excited about reading.
- The pack "Level" corresponds to the grade level your child is entering. A Level 1 pack is appropriate for most students entering 1st grade. A Level 3 pack would be for most 3rd Graders. Your child may be an advanced reader or a struggling reader. Feel free to review the books in each pack to choose a level that is most appropriate for your child's reading ability. If your child is reading at more then 1 grade above the grade they are entering, check-out our "Gifted Reading Packs." Your child might like the content and reading ability in those packs as well. Simply "SEARCH" Gifted Reading Packs to see what we have to offer.
