Summer Reading 2018: Lower School

Grade 1

Attached you will find a list of reading related activity suggestions that can be used with books of your and your son's choosing. Please note that this is entirely optional and the "Summer Reading Challenge" does not need to be completed in full. It is our hope that your son will choose a few of the activities from the list to complete during the summer months. 

Recommended Reads for Kindergarten and Grade 1

Here are some non required titles for reading and sharing suggested by Browning's librarians and teachers. 

Grade 2

Over the summer each incoming 2nd Grader should complete at least one book from the categories below. You may choose books from the recommended list, or from the vast array of available books for children. Keep a reading log!

  • A book recommended by a family member or friend

  • A book with a main character from a culture, country, religion, or race different from your own
