Summer is a great time to read! 2020 will be our fifth summer of reading and we are striving for 100% participation. Summer Reading helps to keep students’ brains active during June and July. It also gives students a platform to bond with classmates on the first day of school. Everyone in the class will have read the same book and will be able to share and discuss their opinions. The books were chosen based on reading levels, curriculum, and/or social related content. We also made sure to choose books that would be enjoyable for the students.
Below are links to the 2020 grade-level lists, accompanying assignments, and rubrics. Happy reading!

PYP Summer Reading:
This year all students of Wesley will read within the theme “to overcome.” Kindergarten through 5th Grade students should complete three activities from the choice board in the summer reading packet and record their summer reading on the Summer Reading Record. A completed record, including a parent signature, should be returned to your child’s homeroom teacher on the first day of school.
