The Peabody Summer Reading Challenge!

Summer break is here! It’s time for sleeping in, summer camps and family vacations.  And it’s the best time — to keep on reading!

Screenshot 2014-05-27 05.39.06This summer we are just challenging students to read different books and to turn in their list at the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year.

Each list provided has books that students may read independently or for parents to read with their students.

The reading challenge is not limited to this list but must be an appropriate grade level for your child.

  • All returned reading logs will earn your child a pass to a Back-To-School Sock Hop!
  • Students will also be able to take AR tests on these books during the month of August!

Summer Reading List Log

Here are the reading lists by grade level:

Happy Reading!
