Most fourth graders gained 2, 3, or more reading levels this year.  But we want our students to keep these gains over the summer, right?  And what makes us better at anything we do?  Practice!  Please help your child practice by establishing a routine of reading at least 20 minutes per day, every day.  Here is a list of excellent books organized by Fountas and Pinnell reading levels, and another list of favorite fourth grade reads put together by students in Ms. Lewis’s class.  If your child prefers nonfiction, Newsela is a good source of age-appropriate nonfiction articles, and students can adust the level of difficulty on each article to their “just right” level.   They can log in with their school google login. Thank you!  And happy summer reading!  If you are coming back next year, the AAS library will allow you to check out a nice stack of books for the summer!
