Summer Reading 2019

Lower School

Pre-K and Kinder

There are many wonderful books that Prekindergarten and Kindergarten students will enjoy. The HAISLN list offers suggestions. We encourage parents to read often to their children over the summer months remembering that children of this age enjoy 'reading the pictures' as well as the words. They can even make up their own stories to accompany the illustrations. Kinkaid does not require that Prekindergarten and Kindergarten students read a certain number of books or keep a list of what they read. The sharing of books over the summer is our only objective.

First Grade

The HAISLN reading list offers suggestions for books for first grade students. Books other than those on the HAISLN list are wonderful as well. We encourage parents to read often to their children over the summer months. Kinkaid does not require that first graders read a certain number of books or keep a list of what they read. The sharing of books over the summer is our only objective.

Second Grade

The HAISLN list offers suggestions for books students going into second grade will enjoy. We expect students to read at least ten on their reading level this summer. A form on which to keep a list of all the books they read can be found online. The list should be signed by a parent and returned to their new second grade teacher on the first day of school.

Third Grade

Students entering third grade should read at least ten books on their reading level this summer. The HAISLN list has recommended titles for entering third grade. Students will keep a list of all the books they read on a special form. The list should be signed by a parent and returned to their new third grade teacher on the first day of school.

Fourth Grade

Students entering fourth grade are required to read at least ten books this summer. There is a form on which to keep a list of the books they read. The HAISLN list has recommended titles for entering fourth grade and is a great place to start looking for summer titles.

Reading lists must be signed by a parent and returned to their new fourth grade teacher on the first day of school.
