Shelton Summer Reading Program
Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
Research indicates that the only way children become better readers is by reading. In order to instill a love of reading in our youth, we need to encourage our children to read all year long, and summer is an important time for them to read for enjoyment. Therefore, this summer we will again offer Shelton’s Summer Reading Program.
This Summer Reading Program contains a list of suggested books that are appropriate and interesting for children based upon the grade level that they will be entering. This list offers a wide variety of titles and authors to meet children’s varied interests and readiness levels. The list includes nonfiction and content area selections to extend the science and social studies curricula as well. Feel free to add other books by the listed authors that reflect your child’s age and areas of interest.
The success of this program depends heavily upon your support as parents. Our shared commitment will help your children to become critical readers and thinkers and develop a life-long love of reading.
