Over the summer months, we ask your child to participate in the Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Journal Program.

Summer reading is a proven method of encouraging reading. Allowing your child to self-select books helps develop enthusiastic readers. Teach your child to use the “Five-Finger Rule” when selecting books. It is one of the best ways to test a book for readability. The rule is as follows:

1. First choose the book you think you would like to read.

2. Find a page of text somewhere in the middle of the book. Find a page with lots of text (words) and few or no pictures.

3. Begin to read the page. It is best to read the page aloud or in a whisper if possible while doing the test so you can hear the places where you have difficulty.

4. Each time you come to a word you don’t know, hold one finger up.

5. If you have all five fingers up before you get to the end of the page, wave the book “good-by.” It is probably too difficult for you right now. Try it again later in the year.

6. If you have no fingers up when you finish the page, then the book may be too easy a read for you.

7. If you have less than five fingers but more than one or two fingers up when you finish reading the page, the book may be just what you need to grow as a reader.

Writing: It would be beneficial for your child to become more comfortable with cursive over the summer.  Please refer to their third grade handwriting book to ensure that they are forming the cursive letter correctly.

READING:

Please read as much as you can! It helps you grow in so many ways: reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary, and just learning about the world!  Keep a log of all the books you’ve read over the summer and bring it with you on the first day of school. Click here for a log that you can print out, or just use a piece of paper and write down your titles.  We cannot wait to be AMAZED by all of the reading you do over the summer!

At the very least, you should read 3 books over the summer.

1) Sputnik’s Guide to Life on Earth by Frank Cottrell Boyce ~ A fun story about a boy who helps an alien save the planet, Earth! It is available in hardback, as a Kindle book, and as an audio recording. Have fun reading this one!

Please note: This is our ALL – READ which means ALL of us will read it! So when we get back to school in August, we will all have this book to talk about and share ideas about.. It is also one of the Battle of the Books books, so if you want to be in Battle of the Books, you will already have one book finished! It might be better to wait until later in the summer to read this one, so that it is fresh in your mind when we come back.

2) Any NON-FICTION book ~ A biography, a how-to book, or an informational book

3) Any other book that you want to read. It can be another fiction book, or another non-fiction book.

Don’t forget, if you read at least 8 books, you can fill out the Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Log, and get a free book!
