K5 Summer Reading

Dear Children:
It is important to read this summer. Read books that you want to read. If you cannot read yet, then read with your parents. You can point to words you know; practice naming the sounds they make; look at the title of the book; count the words in a sentence; count the letters in a word; and LISTEN to your parents read.

Each student who reads 5 appropriate books (Dr. Seuss books, Easy Readers, Step into Reading, etc) and gives the list to his teacher by the 2nd day of school will get ice cream after lunch on the 3rd day of school. Here’s how it works:

• Read 5 appropriate books.
• Write the titles on a sheet of paper.
• Have your parent initial by the title.
• Give the list to your teacher by the 2nd day of school.

Ask your parent to take you to the Ascension Parish public library and participate in the Summer Reading Program.

Love,
Your K5 Teachers

Some books to consider:
Hop on Pop
The Cat in the Hat
Fox in Socks
Go, Dog, Go

Any of the Wal-Mart Step Into Reading Books for level 1 or 2
