Summer Reading List

for Students Entering 2nd Grade 

Summer gives us all a great chance to slow down a little from the school year's demanding pace. It's also a chance to make time for reading…FUN reading. To stay prepared for the second grade, it is important that your child read at least one book a week during the summer. The following list of authors and series may help BUT should by no means limit your choice of books. Your child should keep a reading record to record the title, the author's name, and the number of pages of each book read during the summer. This record should reflect a variety of books by at least five different authors and must include a minimum of two nonfiction books and one book of poetry. The record is to be given to your child's second grade teacher on the first day of school. Keep the reading easy enough to be enjoyed alone but challenging enough to be discussed with enthusiasm.
