Summer Reading Information for Rising 1st – 6th Graders

It’s that time again… time to think about fun summer reading books!  Studies show that strong readers read daily, developing vocabulary and comprehension with a little reading everyday!  We encourage our students to make it a goal to read 20 minutes a day as often as possible.

To help with ideas of what to read, here are our HCPS summer reading lists!  Also don’t forget that the Henrico County Public Libraries have a wonderful summer reading program where students can win prizes!  Check out the details on their website… https://henricolibrary.org.

Beat the “Summer Slide”

Summer slide isn’t a piece of playground equipment – it’s the tendency for students to lose some of the progress they’ve made during the academic year. But there are ways to keep your students’ skills sharp and have fun all summer long.

For details, resources and lots more ways to foster reading this summer, go to HCPS’ summer reading page.
