The summer is one of the best times to cultivate your student's interest in reading and strengthen their reading ability. With that in mind, please see the summer reading suggestions and/or assignments for your student, below. Thank you for partnering with us to help prepare the next generation to become lifelong learners!
For book recommendations, please look at the book recommendation list under the summer reading lists, or at Mrs. Wilson's blog. Mrs. Wilson also recommends Common Sense Media as a helpful place to find parent reviews on books and media.
We also support our local public libraries during the summer as they promote and run summer reading programs. We encourage your student to join the Fairfield Public Library's Summer Reading Program. Students can easily keep track of their reading online and earn fun prizes while doing so. Anyone can join - you don't even have to be a resident of Fairfield!
