Suggested Summer Reading 2019: Home

Welcome

Dear students,

Summer is here and that means time to unplug, relax and read a book. Reading for fun is one of summer's greatest pleasures and I hope you decide to enjoy it. I suggest a few different ways for you to do that magical thing: build a stack of books to read over the summer and read through them!

  • Go to the "Suggested Reading" tab to see the list of books I made for this summer.
  • Ask me to create a personalized bag of books for you to borrow over the summer. Or fill your own. We supply the bag.
  • Go to the "Sync Audiobooks" tab and download two free audiobooks a week until August 1.
  • Go to the "Reading Lists to Browse" tab to see more reading lists. 
  • Go to the "Summer meet-up" tab to see when and where we are meeting this summer to talk about what we're reading. 
  • Visit the Weston Public Library or your local library. They have so many great books available for you.  

Sincerely,

Mrs. Hanson

Think about this:

  • Research shows that the academic skills of students who don't read over the summer decline. This is called "summer slide." 
  • Research also shows that the skills of students who do read over the summer improve. 
  • The academic gap between students who read over the summer and those who don't widens exponentially over the years. 

On which side of the gap do you want to be?
