Maintaining Reading Growth (5th Grade)

 

Dear Families:

This year your child has worked hard to develop as a reader. Please help your child to

maintain their reading growth over the summer by dedicating 30 minutes each day for

your child to practice their reading. After they have read engage in discussion about

what they have read. Encourage them to share what they like about the book and

author to help guide the selection of their next book. Visiting the Public Library is a

great way to find new books and authors and gain access to a wide selection of poetry,

fiction, and informational books.

 

Screen Shot 2014-06-02 at 11.28.12 AM

After reading try one or two of the following:

  • What is the theme of the text? How do you know?
  • Explain the relationships or interactions between two or more individuals.
  • Describe how the author organized the information.
  • Describe two or more main ideas in the text.

 

Read a chapter book a week! Discover a new genre.
