                                                    Summer 2010

RATIONALE: Summer Reading is an important aspect of our school’s reading focus. We believe
  that summer reading builds fluency, vocabulary, writing, and background knowledge. The
   summer reading is incorporated into the course’s instruction at the beginning of the year.

                           Titles are linked to a site for purchasing a copy.
