SECOND GRADE SUMMER READING PROJECT Dear Parents and Second Grade Students, Studies show that most students experience a loss of reading skills over the summer months, but children who continue to read actually gain skills. During the summer, parents can help children sustain reading skills, strengthen their vocabulary, and reinforce the benefits of reading for enjoyment. During the summer, I am asking your child to read a book of his/her choice. I have included a website and a listing of books that your child might be interested in reading. You can help your child choose a book from the list or choose one that is not listed. The book should be one that your child can read and understand. Please do not select a book above or below your child’s reading level. The project is due the first week of school, so please do not wait until the last minute to start your project. Your child should be able to explain his/her project to the class. You are encouraged to help your child, but please do not do the report for him or her. If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
