Summer Reading ProgramFor Students Entering Third, Fourth, and Fifth GradesDivision of Academic ServicesDepartment of Humanities3409958934450Paterson Public Schools Elementary Summer Reading Assignment (Students entering Third, Fourth or Fifth Grade)Dear Parents/Students,All K-12 students attending the Paterson Public Schools will have the opportunity to select books that they are interested in and motivated to read during the summer. Our aim is to keep students connected to reading habits and comprehension skills that were introduced during the school year, with the ultimate goal of building a love for reading within your child.For our incoming first and second grade students, your child has been assessed throughout the school year to determine his/her reading level according to Fountas & Pinnell’s leveling system. On this leveling system, your child’s “just right” reading level is assigned using a letter between A and Z. This “just right” level is where your son/daughter can read comfortably with fluency and understanding. In order to maintain the reading growth your child has achieved this school year, we are suggesting that your child read books independently on his/her reading level, throughout the entire summer. A list of book suggestions at each reading level can be found by visiting the parents/students tab on the district website.To support your role during your child’s reading experience, we are providing you with guiding questions that you can ask your child about the book that is being read. Questions are organized by reading level, as it is important to ask questions that match your child’s reading level. Some of the questions are related to what you might ask before the text is read, during the reading of the text, and at the conclusion of the text. Should you wish to challenge your child or push his/her thinking, you may go up to the next level of questions.While reading with your child this summer, we are asking that your child keep a reading log of the books he/she read. Further, we ask that your child choose one of the books read and complete the attached project. Both the reading log and project should be submitted to your child’s teacher in September.This summer we recommend that your child continue to use RAZ Kids, which they have used throughout the school year. In the event you have not used this at home, RAZ Kids can be accessed via the internet at main/Login or by downloading the free App on any smart device.Additionally, we encourage you to get a virtual library card for Paterson Public Library by visiting . By obtaining a virtual library card you can use your library card to borrow audiobooks, ebooks, magazines, movies and music for ANY age, 24/7!For more detailed information, please review the packet to best prepare your child for success in their reading journey or visit our district website paterson.k12.nj.us. Wishing you a wonderful summer filled with reading that takes you on a journey inside your own imagination!3613150571500Suggested Titles Level ASuggested Titles Level BTitleAuthorTitleAuthorDo You Want To Be My Friend?Eric CarleThe Bus for UsSuzanne BloomGoing to Grandma’s FarmBetsy FrancoHave You Seen My Cat?Eric CarleI Can WriteRozanne WilliamsWinterAaron CarrI Need A Little HelpKathy SchulzOllieOliver DunreaLook What I Can DoJose AruegoPig PicnicPatricia HubbellMoving DayJo KittingerI Can SkiMelanie Davis JonesA Parrot for PamMary Ann HoffmanHow Many Fish?Carson Le CohenPlay Ball!Janey LevyMy Big FamilyDonna RiceSchool Is Cool!Colleen AdamsA Big SurpriseKristi ButlerWhat Can I Be?

Use the TD Summer Reading Log too and take it to a branch by August 31st to get $10 deposited into a TD Simple Savings Account.DateTitleAuthorMinutes ReadSummary of What Was ReadThird, Fourth, and Fifth Grade Summer Reading ProjectThis year’s summer reading assignment is to read at least two books and to record notes for one of those books. This year the two-column chart notes must be completed on a book of fiction because they will be used in a narrative writing unit first period.Directions for a Two-Column Chart(Double Entry Journal)Use one of the summer reading fiction texts to complete the attached two-column chart. As you read, think about the central theme of the text. For the left-hand column, list no fewer than 6 and no more than 8 quoted passages that you found significant to the book’s central idea or author’s message. These passages may include descriptions of specific character, persons, events, images or places; citations may be dialogue or regular prose. Citations must include page number references. Please include at least one citation from the beginning, middle, and end of the text.In the right-hand column, record reactions to those citations. In this column, in your own words, explain the importance of each citation as it relates to a theme or main idea of the book. Try to show a thoughtful response by explaining your thoughts about the importance of the citation, your connections to the citation, or your questions about the quote (what does the quote make you wonder about?). Make sure you do not offer a summary of the citation or paraphrase the citation.To complete this assignment, you may wish to use Post-its or record notes on a separate piece of paper while reading. Ultimately, you will complete and submit your two-column chart to your language arts teacher in September. The two-column chart will be graded and will serve as a piece of prewriting for an assignment in the first marking period.Example of a quote and reaction from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by Frank Baum.CitationSignificance“But I do not want people to call me a fool, and if my head stays stuffed with straw instead of with brains, as is yours, how am I ever to know anything?” (Baum, 26)Please note that the citation is in quotes. It should appear exactly as it appears in the text. Furthermore, the citation is followed by a parenthetical citation that includes the author’s last name and page number.When Dorothy, the main character, meets Scarecrow, she helps him down from his perch. In the text, Scarecrow explains that he doesn’t mind having a body stuffed with straw because he cannot get hurt. However, he fears living with a head of straw because he feels he will never know anything. Scarecrow joins Dorothy’s on her journey to the Emerald City because Scarecrow desires the ability of having knowledge. It seems like all of the characters are on a search for something that they feel they need to be better. When I think about the Scarecrow’s mission, it makes me wonder if sometimes I take my ability to think and learn for granted. This passages relates to the central idea that all of these characters are on a search for something better.Name:________________________________ Grade in September______Title of Text:____________________________ Author:________________CitationSignificance ................
