Suggested Summer Reading (Leveled!)

Hello friends! 

This will be a quick post as I have a full day ahead of me prepping for some PD I'll be doing in OK later this week.  

As I was going through some files to share, I came across these lists I created to send home with my kids last year.  I compiled a list of different books parents can buy/check out from the library that reach their independent reading levels.  I also included books that would be great for fluency!  Parent notes are attached to the top of each list.  I sent these home in my kids' portfolios at the end of the year.  I also gave the parents a copy and explained it to them at our last parent/teacher conference of the school year.  I made sure to only send home the list that was applicable to each student so that they weren't independently reading text that was too difficult.  

The suggested book lists are geared towards independent reading levels C-H / 3-14.  If you have any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them!!!  


Have a great day!

  9. THANK YOU!!! I appreciate you sharing the summer reading list SO much!! I'm going through the book list to find the AR levels. There's a minor typo on Level 12...CARROT SEED. It's states Robert Kraus as the author but I found the author to be Ruth Krauss. Again, thank you for the time and dedication!!
