JPIIA 2018 Required Summer Reading Assignments

First and Second Grade:

There are no specific book titles for  the children to read over the summer; rather, it is suggested that they participate in the Public Library Summer Reading Program.  This is a great way to stay connected to skills and they have some wonderful prizes!  If you prefer not to participate in this program, please read other materials with your child each day to keep his/her skills sharp!

Third-Fifth Grade: 

Select two of the books listed for your grade to read.

Complete one of the four options below for one of the books. Make sure your final copy is neat and free of errors!

For your second book, you will have a one-on-one conference with your teacher. You should be prepared to have a book discussion with your teacher.
