Learn and Grow in the Summer

Throughout the summer, elementary school children around our community will be working to foster their love of reading. At Bright School, we encourage voracious reading for pleasure this summer. We have no assigned summer projects, but instead, we are giving recommendations for reading that include a variety of genres and authors. Grades three through five will continue to have required novels that will spark discussion and community building during the first weeks of the new school year. All other grade levels have suggested reading lists and suggested authors to help their students grow their love of reading this summer. 

For some added summer fun, we have included optional, summer reading bingo cards for your child. Complete one column or go for a bingo blackout. There are several writing opportunities within these bingo cards for added enrichment. What better way to make reading a shared experience than to share what you've been reading through letters to friends or postcards to family. Your child may want to choose to reflect on reading through illustrations of favorite characters or by designing a book jacket cover. They may want to read in a pillow fort, listen to an audiobook, or read outside. Our sole goal this summer is to encourage reading in whatever medium, location, or genre that interests your child. Have a wonderful summer and read for the love of reading!
