Below you will find summer reading recommendations and requirements; some work is required for all students in rising Grades 6–12. A specific collection of activities and resources for Primary School families can be found HERE.
Summer Activities to Support Learning
Watch movies/shows in French/Spanish.
Listen to audiobooks to promote reading comprehension and fluency.
Read books (at any level) to promote literacy. Let the child guide the book selection.
Read to your child. Selecting books that are at a reading level just above that of your child can introduce your child to deeper plots and characters and more complex vocabulary and sentence structure. This can also serve as a jumping off point for conversations and questions about a wide variety of topics.
Play games that involve strategy, categorizing, memory, thinking routines, and visual-spatial skills.
Journal (in any language) about summer activities — such as camp, visits with friends and family, and travel — to promote writing skills.
