2nd Grade Summer Reading 

Dear Second Grade Families,

As we close out the year, we are also planning for the upcoming year. As part of that planning, we think about building strong readers and strong communities of readers. To help us do just that, we ask students entering second grade do some summer reading in preparation for the upcoming year. Please select at least 2 book from each genre. Of course, students are always encouraged to read more! I have tried to include something for everyone on this list and hope you and your child enjoy picking out a summer reading book. We look forward to seeing you back at school in September!
