SUMMER READING 2017


Mrs. Salm’s Suggested Summer Reading Lists
Pre K- 3rd
4th-6th
7th-8th
This year’s national summer reading theme is “Building a Better World” and I can’t think of any better way to enrich, enlighten and build than through the power of a great book. Reading lays the foundation for life-long learning, literacy and language skills; it also creates a sense of empathy and understanding as we put ourselves in another character’s shoes; allowing our imaginations to soar.   So many terrific books were published this year and I wanted to highlight some of my favorite, recently-published books for some summer reading suggestions — 18 titles for each major grade division. This is a selection of some of the books that I have enjoyed reading this year – and I think that some of the students may enjoy them as well.   Wishing you all a restful and fulfilling summer — happy reading!   Please keep in touch during the summer. I love to hear what everyone is reading!   Mrs. Salm, gro.s1498677433dcb@m1498677433lasd1498677433, Instagram@fly_librarian

Summer is a great time to relax and we would like to suggest that some of the time will be devoted to Hebrew practice and reading so that we maintain what your children learned throughout the year and come prepared for the next school year. We are attaching scanned books for their summer reading. It is not mandatory, but highly recommended.   We would like to wish you a fun and meaningful summer! The Hebrew team
