Summer Reading List 2015-2016

The ALA has issued this summer reading list to bridge the "Summer Slide" between June and September for reading comprehension and loss of knowledge.  To keep your kiddo interested in reading choose one of these books to help keep the slide to a minimum.  I chose to make my own kiddos read at least 15 minutes a day or write a story...  We make it fun and read to each other.  My 5th grader likes to read before she goes to sleep. There are tons of books out there but these are a few that the Association for Library Service to Children suggest from polling kids ages 8-11.
Here is another site you may want to peek at if your kiddo has no interest in the books above:
Here is another resource that can help you everyday! 

To further enhance your kiddo's understanding and keep their comprehension on grade level, complete a book report to go along with one of the books they read.  Here are a few they can complete for a Homework Pass to use during the next school year 2015/2016.

Book Report Poster
There are sooo many on the internet to choose from... these are fun and good for a summer activity.
Thanks so much and I look forward to seeing them!!!
