We know how important it is for young learners to practice over the summer to maintain and build their skills. Here, you’ll find summer reading and math activities for your child by division level.
As we mentioned earlier, summer reading is critical to helping students retain the skills they have developed over the school year.
Click on each grade or division level to learn about required reading and activities, as well as review a supplemental reading list. Reading lists are compiled according to which grade the student will enter in the fall.
This year, WES Dragons in Grades 2-5 are encouraged to take a Summer Reading Trip and explore the United States by reading a wide variety of books that either have a regional setting, author, or focus. Click the picture below for suggested titles and a tracker.
The goal is to read at least one book from each geographic area (Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, & West) to build understanding of the diversity of the United States regions and complete the map.
We encourage families to share photos of reading activities and the books they have read at email@example.com. Children should track their reading and points on the back of the sheet as each book read is worth 10 points! Students who achieve the most points and/or complete the whole map will receive a prize in the fall. We will also be counting up how many books we read across the school – if we achieve the target of reading 1986 books (our founding year), we will gain a free dress day. Please give your tracking sheet to Mr. Pané on the first day of school in September!
Ms. Kellerman and Ms. Girgis have assembled math packets to help our students practice their skills over the summer. The packets should be completed by the start of the school year. There is a work packet and an answer key (so students can self-check) for each math class.
