1 Englewood Public Schools Students Entering First Grade Summer 2015 Reading Packet
2 Dear Families: ENGLEWOOD PUBLIC SCHOOLS SUMMER READING LIST FOR STUDENTS ENTERING GRADE ONE During the summer all students entering Grade 1 should read 20 minutes every day. Summer is a time for fun and relaxation. It is also a great opportunity to read! A major goal of our schools is the promotion of reading as a lifelong pleasure. You can help your child avoid reading loss referred to as the summer slide by setting aside the time for daily reading. Research has shown that children who do not read over the summer will lose more than two months of reading achievement. A child should read throughout the summer and not just prior to the beginning of the school year. During the school year, your child has been learning to choose books that match his or her independent reading level, called just right book. We encourage you to give your child the opportunity to read just right books that are of interest to your child throughout the summer. We also suggest that: You and your child visit the Englewood Public Library and select from the many books available. Your child read at least 20 minutes every day; ask your child to read to you. You talk to your child about the characters, plot, sequence of events, etc. in the book he/she is reading. You encourage your child to reread books that he/she truly enjoys. Your child reads a variety of books (fiction, non-fiction, science, history, poetry, etc.) Your child keeps a Reading Log of the books he/she has read, with your signature. While your child is expected to read many books over the summer, please help your child select one book from the books listed below and ask him/her to complete the attached required activity for the selected book; the completed activity will be collected by his/her teacher the first week of school in September. Books written by Eric Carle Books written by Tommy DePaola Books written by Gail Gibbons Books written by Leo Lioni Young Cam Jansen Series of Books written by David Adler Your child is asked to use the attached Reading Log to keep a record of all the books he/she has read over the summer. After reading a book, your child should write it on their Reading Log; copies of the form can be made by duplication or drawing. The Englewood Public Library, as well as the school s website on will have a copy of the reading list on file. The completed assignment, as well as the Reading Log, should be given to your child s new teacher the first week of school in September. Certificates will be awarded for reading excellence. Please visit the following websites for information on books and related online resources for students and parents: Best wishes for a happy, safe, and book-filled summer vacation!
