For my "incoming" 3rd graders:
It is so important that you keep up your reading skills! Your success in third grade depends a lot on being able to read and understand what you read.
Please read at least 3 chapter books over the course of the summer. Complete a report on each book using the book report papers given. These will be turned into me on the first day of school in September.
Keep a running log of the minutes you've read each day. Prizes will be awarded by Mrs. Whelihan to students who have read the most minutes!
You have been given a suggested reading list. Below are a few highlights from that list. Of course, you may read any book you choose!
