Reading This Summer: 4Th - 6Th Grade

Reading with your child or having your child read everyday will improve their reading as well as build vocabulary. Writing skills will also improve and all academic areas will be strengthened. The following titles are books that I have found that students enjoy or are award winning titles. Make sure you check your child's school summer reading requirements and have your child reading 15-60 minutes every day during the summer.
