SUMMER READING

Dear Parents,

 Here are some amazing resources for summer reading selections:

  • Check out the summer reading programs at your local public library. This summer, visit Boulder Public Library to register for the summer program: Summer of Discovery 2018. Students can track their reading, earn rewards, and attend special events. Other local libraries and bookstores have their own fun programs to check out as well. https://boulderlibrary.org/summer/

  • A terrific all-around book site. Definitely explore this one.

  • A well-developed site specifically geared to boys’ interests in reading. This site is temporarily under construction so check back and in the meantime get a glimpse of some of the Guys Read collections available.

  • Great books about adventurous girls.

  • Check out Scholastic.com. They have books and materials to sell, but also have some ideas and videos to share.

  • Brightly has multiple lists based on age, interest or great new releases.

If you are curious about the level of a specific book, you can google the title with “guided reading level”. (Generally the levels correspond to grades in the following way: Kindergarten Levels A-D, First Grade Levels D-J, Second Grade levels J-M, Third Grade Levels N-P)
