Summer Reading Lists
Studies show that daily reading offers students several benefits. It improves concentration and memory, critical thinking, vocabulary and language skills, and written expression. Because reading comprehension is a cross-curricular skill, it also yields higher achievement in all school subjects and helps students better deal with increasing demands of schoolwork as they grow older. Though summer reading is not required this year, to help students develop these important skills, we have provided recommended reading amounts and lists for each grade level. Students should read for the grade they are entering in the fall.
