2018 - 2019 School Year


GRADE 2 - No summer reading requirements.

GRADES 3 & 4

It is so important for students to read over the summer to avoid regression of reading skills. Below are grade appropriate "Suggested Reading" lists. Each list is meant to help students think about the genre that they might like to read and are not meant to be comprehensive lists of books. Any books that are too difficult for your child to read on his/her own may be read using shared reading, paired reading, or a read aloud by a parent. Books that are easier for struggling readers to read on their own have an asterisk before the title.

SUMMER READING INCENTIVE: Any student who reads 5 or more books at their reading level will receive a prize when they turn in their signed READING LOG at the start of the new school year. In addition, the Charlton Public Library offers a wonderful summer reading program with lots of activities and incentives for children. Visit their website at to learn more.

Above all, summer reading should be relaxing and enjoyable. Our job as parents and teachers is to help our children develop a lifelong love of reading!


There are four book selections for students entering Grade 5. Students should read one book from this list. Although there will be no written component to your summer reading assignment, it’s important for you to spend time practicing this important skill.
