Instructions for Summer Reading

1. Choose a grade level appropriate book to read. You may choose from the suggested list or get your own, but you must have the correct reading level. DO NOT WAIT AND TRY TO DO THE SUMMER READING ALL AT ONCE. This is to be spaced out over the summer.

2. Get a notebook of primary grid paper. You can find these at office supply stores. If your child writes in large letters, you may want to get more than one.

3. After your child reads a chapter in his/her book, they will go back and analyze the chapter using learned skills. There are forms attached. You can print them out or your child can just write the form onto his/her notebook. Finally, your child will write about the chapter.

4. You repeat these steps for each chapter of the book.

5. Your child will make a project about the book when he or she is done. Perhaps he/she will draw scenes from a favorite part of the book, or build a diorama of the story or a subject in the book. For instance, if the book is Mummies and Pyramids, your child might make a diorama of the Egyptian pyramids.

6. Only one book is required. Your child may do more than one book if he or she would like to do so.

My child’s grade level equivalent (G.L.E.) reading level is :____________________

Find a book at this level. Not sure of the level? Check on an internet search engine for the grade reading level of the book. List the name of the book. Be careful with chapter books. Different books are at different reading levels.
