Summer Reading Grade 5
“Books aren’t just made of words. They are filled with places to visit and people to meet” - Anonymous. Reading is one of the most important and fulfilling means to master the tool of language and prevent summer slide . Reading at any age not only helps children learn new vocabulary and ways to express themselves; but also teaches new concepts, allows them to better understand emotions, and enhances their imagination.
As your child moves into fifth grade, we have selected the following list of books that will hopefully inspire your child to explore, engage in conversations, ask questions and continue reading independently. We suggest reading a minimum of 25 minutes a day. The book list has a variety of independent reading series, as well as, diverse children's books that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Students must pick one book from the following list to complete summer projects on. The student choice board will allow your child to pick one of the following items from the breakfast, lunch and dinner categories. The dessert choice is an optional extension and will be your choice if you would like to complete. All three activities will need to be completed and brought to school on the first day back from Summer vacation. You may use any form of materials, recycled goods, paper products, modeling materials, electronic platforms, building blocks, etc. to complete the projects. Get as creative as possible!
We have included parent resources and conversation starters to help further stimulate their brains and help them learn and grow. We hope you enjoy our book list for our 2022 “Summer Of Wonder” Summer reading.
