Summer Reading List

for Students Entering 5th Grade

Choose one of the following:

Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
The Underneath by Kathi Appelt
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls

Be prepared to complete an assignment about the book you chose to read.

In addition to this book, rising 5th graders must read at least three other books that they have not read before.


This summer you have two options for completing the written component of summer reading.

Option 1:

Students will keep a reading record sheet that includes title and author.  This record will be signed by a parent and turned into their LA/SS teacher on the first day of school.

Option 2:

Participate in the new online Google Group. Get recommendations from classmates, post your own recommendations, and even reply to others to share your opinions. Find out more about how to access the Google Group for Summer Reading.
