In Second Grade we will focus on five different kinds of books. Get a head start on the year with these wonderful reads!
3 Required Books (Complete the summer reading challenge for each book):
Artful Reading by Bob Raczka
Available at your neighborhood library or in paperback from your favorite local or online book sellers. The Second Grade teachers also have several copies available to borrow.
This wonderful book shows you how artists have chosen to draw or paint people reading. Your Grade 2 teachers would like you to think about when and where and how YOU like to read. Ask someone to take a photograph of you reading. Be ready to share your photo and your favorite pages from Artful Reading in the first days of school in the fall.
