Fight the Summer Slide with Resources for Reading Practice

To avoid the usual loss of literacy skills over the summer months, encourage students to continue reading over the break. Reading A-Z provides thousands of engaging texts that are easily printed and assembled so students can bring the library home and continue to practice their reading skills and prepare for success in the coming school year!

Step 1 - Select books for students in your class. Itís easy to keep books organized using the File Cabinet.

Step 2 - Have students select which books they want to read from your book list using the Summer Reading Order Form.

Step 3 - Have students turn over the order forms to volunteer book builders who can assemble the books for them.

Step 4 - Have parents and students sign the Summer Reading Contract, and send home the Monthly Reading Report Forms and the Summer Reading Journal so students can log and summarize the books they have read.
