Blanchard Reading List
Summer reading Blanchard.docx
Suggested summer reading goals for students based on grade levels are:
K-2 students: 10 books
3-5 students: 8 chapter books
6-12 students: 5 fiction books and 5 non-fiction books
Research shows that reading loss occurs for most children when they are not in a formal learning environment or engaged in any form of educational activities. But that loss is preventable – Harvard University Professor Dr. James S. Kim, for example, has demonstrated that when students read a minimum of eight high-interest, ability-appropriate books over the summer, their reading skills grow as much as students who attend summer school.
